Outwit and outsmart your opponents to sneak up to a victory in Zenteeko!

Zenteeko is a super simple abstract strategy game played on a 5 x 5 board, with each spot connected to all other surrounding ones. To win the game, players have to manoeuvre their four coloured markers into one of four simple groupings: a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line, or in a square. 

Although the rules are easy and can be learned within two minutes, the situation on the board will evolve quickly to catch you off guard. Players will need to pay attention and think ahead as the other players could unknowingly slide into winning positions. 

Zenteeko impresses with its presentation. Fully produced in a leather-like material, markers for all three players fit into a tube-shaped zippered pouch attached to the board. The entire board rolls up and snaps shut into a durable package that can be brought around and set up in almost any location.

Games usually play for a short 2 to 5 minutes, but can last really long if all players are equally crafty. However, outmanoeuvring your opponents to bring in a win after a long match can be superbly satisfying. Fans of abstract strategy games will love the depth of this deceivingly simple-looking game!
