Welcome to
The Museum of Abstract Strategy Games [bigsmile]

This site introduces wide varieties of abstract strategy games from all over the world.

Abstract strategy games are games with perfect information, no chance, and usually for two players or teams, in which victory or defeat is determined only with the intellectual ability.

It is interesting to know that, for example, a Japanese classic abstract strategy game, Shogi has a long and fascinating history and so many curious variants in the world. There are varieties of original games that are created by professional game creators or amateur fans, and published and distributed by game companies.

Unfortunately, abstract strategy games are losing ground to other games these days. There are certain games that you can never find in the market or you can hardly find any information on them however hard you try.

We would like to contribute to helping the situation: We will make the boards and pieces downloadable, the game applications playable online, and the software libraries that are used for the game programming available here. We also discuss related subjects such as computer science, mathematics, and culture, not only introduce the descriptions of the games or the books talk about them, wishing to help to develop a deeper understanding for abstract strategy games.

This site is being run with a cooperation of Games and Education Division of 'Game Amusement Society.'

For any questions, requests, or comments, please contact us.
