A new boxed version of Adomoc is now available for a low price! The new basic set has a brief one-page set of instructions rather than the full booklet and it does not come with a cloth bag to store the pieces. These differences from the deluxe set help to keep the cost low.
You can still download and print the entire instruction manual, complete with diagrams, notation reference, and tips. Download the free manual here.
An updated, complete version of Adomoc is now available for purchase, which includes the board, playing pieces, instructions, and box all as a single, inexpensive package.
This version has new, cardboard playing pieces that stand upright for easy visibility. The game board is manufactured in a compatible size so that you can also order the high-quality acrylic playing pieces separately to use with the same board.
Although you can get an complete Adomoc game with cardboard pieces, you might prefer the solidity, weight, and shiny appearance of the plastic playing pieces.
These professional pieces are now available in red and black, which makes it easy for players to distinguish one breed from the other.
The price has been reduced and these pieces will fit well on the Adomoc cardboard board, fabric board, or other boards.
After reviewing feedback many people that have played Adomoc (Mensa competition or otherwise), I see that some portions of the rules were written or organized in a confusing way.
In response, I’ve updated the English instructions and les règles en Français so that they’re easier to understand. None of the rules have changed, I’ve only revised the explanations.
I hope this makes it easier for people to learn and start playing.
Getting boxes of Adomoc games ready to ship to Mensa Mind Games 2013
Mensa is holding it’s annual Mind Games competition on April 19 – 21. This year, Adomoc will be one of the games that the organization’s members can play. The boxes filled with official Adomoc deluxe game sets is now en route.
The association describes the event as “It’s a national event. American Mensans get together to play and rate the latest board and card games over one spring weekend.” Out of more than fifty games, they choose five favourites for the Mensa Select seal. Whether or not Adomoc gains the Mensa select vote, I’m looking forward to so many people being introduced to the game.
You can buy a smaller version of the acrylic Adomoc set in our shop. This latest version is just like the other regulation acrylic ones except at a smaller scale (20cm in diameter). It should be somewhat more portable and it’s less expensive.
Also, soon you will be able to purchase some boxed, cardboard versions as well.
It’s been over a decade of work. We’ve refined the game of Adomoc. We’ve searched and tried many ways to introduce it to the world and it turns out that’s it’s not easy to introduce a new board game.
Finally, with this Web site, I’m happy to say that anyone can find out about Adomoc, learn to play it, and get a game set to play.
We’re trying something a little different than you might expect from many board game producers. The game sets that you can buy right now are all produced individually, when you order them. They’re made via new laser-cutting and 3D-printing processes.
The goal of Adomoc International is to have a central place that people can not only discuss game strategy, offer their own versions of Adomoc sets for sale, discuss designs, and get information about Adomoc events, but also to eventually offer an online version of the game.
Adomoc is a two-player, abstract strategy board game. Collaborate and compete with friends to transcend the board’s edge and reach its centre.
Go began its rise to popularity in 6th century BCE China. Chess spread from India in the 6th century CE and captivated the world. Play Adomoc into a new millenium.
