Agon (Queen’s Guard, Queen’s Guards, Royal Guards) is played on a six by six by six hexagonal game board. Each player has one queen and six guards. Agon has a unique method of capture and relocation. The goal is to be the first to move one’s queen to the central hex (throne) and surround her with her six guards.
Agon may be the oldest board game played on a hexagonally celled board, first appearing in France as early as the late 18th century.
The game reached its greatest popularity a century later when the Victorians embraced it for its blend of simple rules and complex strategy.
Each board is made of 11-ply premium ¾” (1.895 cm) thick Birch plywood for long-term durability. Since wood is a natural product, each board has a unique grain making it one-of-a-kind. The boards are sold as either unstained or stained. The stained boards are satin clear-coated for maximum protection and easy cleaning. Each game comes with two sets of distinctly colored game pieces as well as detailed rules and how-to-play instructions booklet. The colors of game pieces are subject to availability.
