mog® is a roll-and-move boardgame for two players. The board is divided into rows and columns of cells and moves are made by rolling two dice. Players can get a win either by taking all of their opponent's pieces or by placing their own pieces on designated home-cells. The game is quick to set up and is easy to learn and to play. A typical game takes about 20 minutes. Points are scored for a win and successive games can be played in a set. The game is suitable for players 6 - 600 yrs.
mog® is constructed from very simple elements combined in a unique way. These contribute to the complexity of the game play and the sophistication of the game’s mechanism. The unique features of mog® are recognised by patent. Other features are included to hold the mechanism together and to facilitate the play. These are all described in ‘the hard stuff’.
It is a feature of mog® that the rules governing play are few and simple, so playing the game does not require mastery of a contrived and obscure set of supplementary and conditional clauses. This makes the game accessible to a broad range of people and a wide age-group. Also, because mog® is a number-and-space game, it has an educational capability without being an ‘educational game’.
