Played for the first time nearly 7 years ago.
As project design it was a precursor of many new abstracts.
Cirkle 2 and the cirkle core design were introducing the concept of terrain position,variable power rank and swapping position,applied to an abstract strategy board game.
All the Cirkle games are professionally produced, the quality of the components is second to no one.
The game play is challenging and fun at the same time and it does offer play options.

There's a lot going on here than Cirkle 2 being merely a 'chess chameleon'. The gameplay is quite different as the overall goals are so dissimilar to Chess; you're taking over specific territory and are not trying to eliminate a specific piece.

This needs more gameplay but after languishing on the shelf for so long it's getting its due.

UPDATE: April 2015

Been playing this game a lot with my son. It's actually much better than I initially thought and so my rating has increased from a 7.5 to an 8.5. Very well made and surprisingly deep. I'm now curious about the other games in the Cirkle series to see if they match the depth of gameplay on offer with Cirkle 2.

Still trying to get my brain around this, but so far (a few plays), I give it an 8.

cirkle gaming concept and rockets missiles army pieces....?! It does sound awkaward,but it does work...the exchange positon of the pieces, a kinda of swap,is a great tactical move.
Extra Rules in english inserted needed for clarification.

Cirkle 2 and Cirkle Wom deserve more attention.

Enjoyable play with some learning curve due to special powers for units coupled with rules for interactions and positions on board. A very broad decision tree. Some plays required to determine if there is real depth here but it certainly appears so. In some ways very similar to chess and the antithesis of go.

Really cool production job. You really get your money's worth here. English rules come with the latest version so Nello's translation is not required to play.
