Ostomachion - a wooden puzzle game
The word comes from the words bone and battle and it means the battle of the bones. The game was very popular in antiquity and it resembles today’s tangram. It used to be played by 14 geometric shapes (bones) forming a square. One form of play to which classical texts attest is the creation (through rearrangement of the pieces) of different objects, animals, plants etc. Another suggestion is that it exercised and developed memory skills in the young since two or more players made several geometric figures and competed with each other. Made out of oak and mdf.
The game comes in a wooden box
