Kaalu is a 2-player abstract strategy game of balance.
Players take turns either placing a stone from their supply, or moving a number of stones from one pile to another, aiming to achieve 'primacy' of four of the seven piles before their opponent.
Kaalu is an extremely simple game, component-wise. It consists entirely of 63 stones, in 3 different colored sets of 21.
I designed Kaalu to be a game that 'could' have been played a thousand years ago, with nothing more than stones/beads/shells that could be found easily, and pits in the ground. The mechanics are fairly simple and have precedent in ancient games.
I also wanted a game that played with the theme of balance -- its been a bit of a fascinating topic for me for a long time, and I like to explore that.
The game lends itself to a chess-like notation system as well, providing the possibility for long-term study should one wish to dive deep.
