שוחק מספר פעמים, הכל נמצא ובמצב טוב, מהדורה ראשונה של המשחק.

נמצא לרוב באזור המרכז (קו רחובות – ראש העין) ומדי פעם גם בחיפה

A game I'd been watching to find on eBay, from the June 2015 raffles.

These pieces could be used as bases for more standard chess pieces to mark hybrids.

Pieces are squares and squares are pieces

I believe this also gives me what I need to play Schachen and Chex

Chess with no board and no 3D pieces. Just tiles.

The 2014 version has plastic tiles (I believe the earlier version was made of punch-out cardboard). The trade-off is the newer version only has parts for 4 players, where the original version had parts for up to 6.

Considering I have difficulty finding one other human willing to play these things - the trade off was worth it. Plus the newer one is easier to find.

In Tile Chess, the board isn't used and the pieces are represented by tiles. The pieces move in the traditional fashion, including capturing, and the game — and the pieces for that matter — is held together by the restriction that each piece must always be connected to another piece, with that piece being connected to another, etc. Thanks to this requirement, the board and the grid that the pieces move on is formed by the pieces themselves (or lack thereof). You cannot make moves that would orphan pieces, which adds an interesting wrinkle to the game — and to make matters worse (in a good way), you might have to defend yourself against more than just one opponent...

Also, you can play Chex using a set of Tile Chess, and I'm sure other variants as well.

* This entry was originally for Chex, but Tile Chess is cheaper, enables multiplayer, and it can play Chex, while Chex can't play Tile Chess.

"Tile Placement games feature placing a piece to score VPs, with the amount often based on adjacent pieces or pieces in the same group/cluster, and keying off non-spatial properties like color, "feature completion", cluster size etc."

I think Tile Placement is appealing because you're constructing something, and there are many possible combinations, so games are often highly replayable. However, most Tile Placement games I've seen are on the lighter side of the hobby; what are some heavier Tile Placement games that you know of, and would you recommend them?

Like entry 2, I'm interested in it for itself, aswell as for the infinite chess variant potential.

Not sure if this is in the spirit of what you're looking for; it's very chess-like in the sense of having all the pieces and rules of chess, except that it's an open-ended grid instead of 8x8 and the pieces must stay contiguous as in Hive. Nifty game in any case.

Tile Chess belongs to this list, the first game coming to my mind when thinking about small but mighty. Especially the older edition fits to your pocket and is easily portable with light cardboard and thin box. The second edition is bigger but still smaller than many games on this list. And if "mighty" means that you can have 2-6 players deeply engaged for over an hour, it fits the bill on mightyness. Of course it can also end quickly and has player elimination, which can be problematic with newbies and experienced players together. So not a perfect 10 game for me, but definitely worthy for this list.
