Watch us explain how to play Blindside

Blindside: Chess Strategy Without the Rules
Chess seems to be the gold standard when it comes to two-person strategy games. But the problem with chess, especially for the child or adult with ants in their pants, is trying to remember the roles and rules of each chess piece. Introducing Blindside, a game with all the strategy and challenge of chess but with pieces that boldly state their limitations and their freedoms.

Pieces That Tell You How They Can & Can’t Be Used
Each player has seven hexagonal game pieces, with two to five movement arrows in each piece. If you have a Blindside piece with four movement arrows you can move up to four spaces in any of the directions that the movement arrows point. In addition, the random blue pivot spaces allow a player to proceed in any direction, now constrained only by the number of moves.

Limiting Your Opponent’s Mobility
The real object of Blindside is to capture your opponent's movement arrows. You capture movement arrows in two ways: by landing directly on your opponent’s game piece or by jumping over your opponent's game piece. As you remove arrows you change your opponent’s mobility.

A Brilliant Two-player Strategy Game
The first player to capture 17 arrows wins. Blindside’s puzzle-like playing board with movable blue pivot spaces allows for endless battlefield scenarios. Lots of maneuvering with just the right amount of rules, Blindside is a brilliant two-player strategy game for ages six and older.

    This game is a hit! February 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Tony from Shelton, WA United States  
    My children ages 9 to 16 love the Blindside game!  Although it is only for 2 players, the others can't resist watching a game in progress.  Our family really enjoys strategy games, and with the endless possibilities of setting up the board and rule adaptations suggested in the instructions I doubt we will tire of Blindside.  There are only a few things that we would have changed in the product itself:  there are no extra arrows included so we have to be very careful not to lose any, the arrows have a small and large end which can be difficult to distinguish when placing in the pieces, and the action spaces cannot be seen when pieces are on them so a player has to lift a piece to make sure it is on an action space.  But these minor annoyances have not deterred my family from playing this game every chance they get!
