Elemental Halma

Like Halma or Chinese Checkers with an elemental twist

Elemental Halma is a board game for either 2 or 4 players. It is similar to its namesake and Chinese Checkers, except each player represents one (in four-player) or two (in two-player) of the four Greek elements, and each element can only capture one other element. In addition, special square types can be used to move quickly across the board and win the game in an alternate manner.

In addition to the front of the game board (which uses this game's special rules), the back of the board is printed without the special squares so that regular Halma rules (with fewer squares and pieces) could be used as well.

Finally, included in your purchase are DRM-free PDF files of the rules and the game board. The game board's PDF is layered so you can create your own customized versions.

I am always open to suggestions about how this game could be improved. Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if anything is wrong in your printing of Elemental Halma. Please e-mail me at: suggestions AHT giantspacelizard DAWT com.

Note: The included rules are for 2 or 4 players, not 3 players.

Components

NOTE: This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
