Pegasus Speile has announced Axio, a new 2-4 player abstract strategy game by Dr. Reiner Knizia. Axio is a spiritual successor to the excellent 2004 game Ingenious, but uses square instead of hexagonal tiles, each having two of the iconic colored ingenious symbols. Ingenious was also created by Dr. Knizia, but remains the property of Sophisticated Games. Dr. Knizia has stated that he intends there to be a line of Axio games, each using the familiar mechanisms and symbology; Axio Octagonal has already been shown on triggy.com.
Axio will be premiered at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg in February, and should be released Summer 2017.
