This is an excellent multi-player abstract game. The changing board dimensions and the tightening placement of pieces creates excellent tension. If you like abstracts, this is an excellent choice. Under appreciated game in my opinion.

2 player, it's a nice abstract. Not sure how it will play with more.

Tentative rating after two 2-player-games, may well go up.

Initially I was sceptical about this one, having played Organisms and then Zertz and Dvonn a lot of times and doubting that there would be another original design about isolation and a shrinking board. But it's interesting and likeable in its own right. Need more plays!

Seems cool, didn't quite completely grasp the best strategies on the first play.

Arktia is an indeed glacial but cunning mixture of placing your pieces quickly on the board, stacking them, attacking other players and doing it while keeping the pieces connected and with enough free fields around them to move onto. When all pieces are on the board, the board's building tiles start to melt (i.e. disappear), raising up your score but obviously depriving players of precious space.

Interesting as it is, the game is remarkably difficult to grasp: the rules for moving and stacking are few but very restrictive, and they feel even more so when the board starts to shrink. The initial setup of the pieces must be done with extreme care, since attacks are actually few but can result fatal.

Stefan Kögl (Rumis); NO INFORMATION ON BGG! But Boards & Bits says: On the distant ice moon Arktia a research station is built. Players try to build or move their residential or research modules, called 'Muglus' (small towers of rings, discs and stones), to control a maximum of tiles. But beware; muglus, which are cut off from their main settlement, are lost, and ground tiles can "melt" and disappear due to global warming.
