Tame the big snake. The more the game progresses, the more choices are limited. Stack and swap your pieces to find the right angle of attack.

An unmistakable strategy game, sober and elegant, with simple rules where the combinations are infinite but no equality is possible. 

How to play ?

  Strenght of the game :  


  • Sober and elegant design

  • Quick games, full of unexpected surprises. 

  • Stimulate anticipation of the mind 


  • 1 magnet box

To win the game, first create a stack of 7 using both your own and your opponent’s scales. Moves are made of 1, 2 or 3 squares depending on the value of the scale at the top of the stack you are moving. 

When you control a stack, with a scale of your color at the top, you have the choice of moving the highest scale or the two highest. To move your pieces, you will have to move over the scales and stacks of scales 

forming the snake’s body or swap your pieces between them. Be careful, you will not be able to swap directly after your opponent. 

The more the stacks increase in size, the rarer the paths to 

take become. Very simple, very fast... and very, very tricky...!
