Shobu Board Game

SND1005 Shobu Board Game published by Smirk and Laughter

SHOBU is a beautifully crafted abstract strategy game for two players.

On your turn:

  • 1. Move one of your stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally.
  • 2. Match that move with another of your stones on the opposite color board and push an opponents stone off the board's edge.
  • 3. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from any ONE board to win.

    SHOBU is made of beautiful, natural elements, wood boards, a cotton rope divider and tumbled river stones as playing pieces, giving it incredible table appeal.

    Instantly familiar, yet wholly unique unto its own, SHOBU feels like a game that has stood the test of time. The rules are amazingly simple and can be learned in moments, yet halfway through your first game, you realize the game has a depth and spatial challenge similar to 3-D chess. Simply brilliant.
