Divide and Conquer with Amoeba
January 27, 2019 - 3:24am
IDW Games announces a new tile-laying game by HG Game Worx. In Amoeba, designed by Heidi and Greg Preslicka, players draw and place tiles in order to build the biggest amoebas then claim those amoebas by placing their nuclei markers on them. But here is the twist, players can place tiles on top of completed amoebas to split them up and reduce their opponent’s score. There are 12 unique tiles that will require pattern recognition and strategic thinking to grow the biggest amoeba. The game ends when all tiles are played, and the player with the biggest amoeba wins. Amoeba plays 2-4 players, ages 8+, in about 30 minutes. Contents include 84 Amoeba Tiles, 40 Nuclei Markers, 1 Custom Die, and a multilingual rulesheet. Amoeba is scheduled for release in June 2019.
