Ouroboros: An Abstract Strategy Game

For the 2012 Global Game Jam, I created an abstract strategy board game in a weekend (January 27-28, 2012). The theme of that Global Game Jam was the Ouroboros image, a snake eating its own tail.

The game takes about 10 minutes to play, and here are the complete rules. I also created a 3 minute video. You can explore the official GGJ website for this game. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact me!

After the Global Game Jam, Néstor Andrés, a game publisher, contacted me because he wanted to publish my game, and I accepted. I'm pleased to report that Ouroboros was published in 2012 by Néstor Games, and here's the Board Game Geek page. Enjoy!
