With OpozO, strategy board games will never be the same again! Family friendly fun you can personalise! 2-Player games, age 7+.

Flex your creativity muscles with OpozO Play Systems and find new ways to play OpozO strategy board games with your family and friends. Play ready-made games straight out of the box or use OpozO to create new ways to play. We show you how.
OpozO games occupy the same genre as popular games like Chess, Checkers and Backgammon, but offers something they don’t. OpozO Play Systems are modular. The Play Tiles, the Game Boards, the Rules, the way you want to win can all be choices you make!
We are OpozO – are you?

Family game nights are always important to us and a great way to share good times and create good memories.
Developed by our family, OpozO combines strategy, innovation and fun. It allows us to imagine and makes what we imagine a reality. It encourages creativity and problem solving. Together we make something we can all share. OpozO is a game system for you and your family to work together to devise new ways of playing you can then share with others.
OpozO began life nearly twenty years ago as a fun, less complicated way to learn and play a Chess-like game. Since then it has evolved into so much more!

Getting started with OpozO
OpozO is a modular play system which means it works like simple building blocks. And like building blocks, before you attempt to create a whole skyscraper, it’s best to start by building a small house!
To get you started, we recommend that everyone plays our simple, easy to learn OpozO Play games. Similar in complexity to Checkers (Draughts), OpozO Push, OpozO Bump and OpozO Displace are some of the first OpozO ways we developed to play games and the foundations upon which many OpozO games are now based upon. For example, Sports and Battle are founded on OpozO Push Play and our Connect Mini games on OpozO Displace Play. These simple games show you how we use Strength and Weight and variable movements to deliver new play.
We provide easy to follow Video Guides to get you started on https://opozo.net/resources/ Each OpozO Play System we offer can be easily set up and adapted to play these three simple OpozO games. A game board of 4 x 4 squares and 4 plays tiles each is all it takes to get started with.
OPOZO Play games are great fun, easy to learn and designed to help you to become familiar with changing your challenges, game boards, play tiles and game set ups. They can be enjoyed time and again in their own right, or act as a steppingstone to more customized game experiences tailored to your specific interests, like OpozO Battle and OpozO Sports!
OpozO Play Mini is a Modular Play System designed so you can carry a mini OpozO Play Game with you wherever you go. With 3 Ways to play and 36-Tiles OpozO Play Mini delivers a wide range of pocket-sized fun. And if you want a bigger game, just double up your Play Mini! All OpozO Play Tiles are compatible.
How OpozO works and what makes us different
At the core of all OpozO Play System games are the unique OpozO Universal Connecting Tile. These 3 cm by 3 cm acrylic squares (based on the dimensions of standard Chess board square) can be snapped together easily to form a wide variety of game boards. These connecting board tiles means you can change the size and shape of game boards.
OpozO Tiles are the building blocks of every OpozO game. Players use the tiles in various combinations to create different ways to play. Each tile falls into one of three categories: Board, Play or Resource Tiles. Opozo game boards can have functions too like Castles, Mountains or Deep Water which can deliver new challenge environments. You can choose the game board size and the board tiles you want in your game.
OpozO play Tiles bring innovations to strategy game board play providing for a wide range of attributes like strength and weight and even skills capable of manipulating a ball tile – perfect for Sports Games!
And if you want something where you can truly create the play environment, then OpozO Battle is for you. OpozO Battle does not have the same limitations that OpozO B-Ball or other sports games do. We plan to introduce over 100 different play tile types for OpozO Battle (already designed), so your battles can remain fresh and exciting every time you play.
More board tiles mean bigger or more interesting play environments. More Play and Resource tiles means more variation in play and different challenges to overcome.
The biggest benefit of OpozO is the ability to manage complexity. Keep game boards simple or create more complex boards using a wider range of board tiles and functions. Use Play Tiles with basic attributes or more complex attributes to include ability to pick up and move other tiles! Use play tiles in equal numbers of same types or in variable numbers or differing types. The choice is yours because OpozO loves variation.

Why Support Us
We have designed an operation and manufacture capability that means we can support the production of many play system variations using OpozO Play with our Unique OpozO Universal Tile.
This is why we are offering you a choice of ways to play and not just one game. The OpozO Universal Connecting Tile is the common medium of all our games, the difference being only an image and its attributes we might assign, meaning we have production flexibility.
We are offering more than one way to play on this Kickstarter to demonstrate the potentials provided through OpozO. So much more can be achieved.
It might not surprise you to learn that over nearly 20 years we have developed a much wider range of ways to play than we are showing you here and now! We have another 40 games ready to go, subject only to printing and placing in our OpozO Tiles!
We will support through our web site more new ways to Play with the Play Systems you might choose today. We want you to get the best value from your Play System so we do not simply aim to sell you ‘one game in a box’. OpozO is a new way we can all create play and share with others.
Some of our games are simple one-off fun ways to play which offer limited expansion. Others like Sports are dedicated to specific topics of interests. Others like Battles and OBOTs are intended to be expanded upon and introduce even more unique ways to play such as OpozO 4-Player games or small board Team Games for example.
If you support us now, you will help us deliver more new ways for you to enjoy and create play. Because all OpozO Play Systems as compatible, any new way to play we introduce can be used with the standard board tiles you have in any Play System, meaning we can give you more games for less cost!
That’s right, what if you only need purchase 20 new Play Tiles for example to get a brand-new game? We want to give you that opportunity and choice.
Help us now and look out for more new ways to create play with OpozO.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk on not meeting our Kickstarter target, is not being able to fund the tool which will create the tiles for the OpozO games. This would stop us producing the retail game packs, and the individual board and play tiles in the short term. We would overcome this by funding this ourselves with the help of family and friends, but will then take us longer to raise the funds and order the tool before we start producing the tiles.
We already have the tile designs using CAD ready for production, and the graphics used within the tiles along with the designs for the boxes. We would also like to develop further products over time, which would require further funding for graphics creation.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
