Description Edit | History

Pikemen is a game that uses Icehouse Pieces and a standard 8×8 board.

Pieces are warriors with long spears known as "Pikes." Each turn a Pikeman may charge in the direction he is pointing (move any number of spaces in a straight line) and then reorient his pike in a different direction, including straight up for defense. When in defense, a piece can only be captured by a larger piece. When pointing, a piece may be captured by any other piece.

Captured pieces are worth different points depending on their size: 1 for small, 2 for medium, 3 for large. The player who captures a number of enemy Pikemen worth a given amount first wins-- usually 12 points.

3 Pikemen re-themed pieces
Pieces are re-themed with Roman camps & legions rather than pikemen. Print 3 copies to have enough pieces for a 4 player game; print 5 copies for a 2 player game.
