What Is OBTINEO?
OBTINEO is a 2-6 player, abstract strategy game, with a modular terrain field, three dimensions of play, resource-driven expansion, and several ways to play and win.
I have, occupy, possess, hold.
I preserve, keep, maintain, uphold, persist in.
I assert, show, prove, demonstrate, maintain.
I gain, acquire, obtain, achieve, win.
I maintain myself, prevail, last, stand, continue, succeed.
OBTINEO is the brain child and invention of Chad Zaugg, whose unrelenting passion for strategy games led him, originally, to mix together ideas from other popular board games like Risk and Settlers of Catan, until five years later the three dimensional version of OBTINEO emerged.
OBTINEO is being produced by KickFire Classics, a toy and game company interested in getting kids off their devices and back interacting with real world toys and real world games.

I was hooked after the first game. I'm not a huge gamer, but I obsessed over OBTINEO for days after that first time playing, imagining different playing scenarios and setting myself up to win. It's awesome!
OBTINEO is a fantastic strategy game. Each phase has make or break decisions that helps you sculpt the perfect way to win. The simple movement patterns interacting with the terrain make each battle fun and interesting. There is a ton of replay ability as each game is different and you can try new tactics each time. OBTINEO is a fun game to play and learn.
