Kickstart the Week: Pivit by Tyler Neylon

This game should get a mention just for it's fantastic logo, but the game looks pretty interesting as well. Pivit is an abstract game that is played on a checkerboard, using really nice little discs. The discs feature two arrows showing the direction they can move, as well as a color that shows whether they are a minion or a master. Minions can only move in the direction shown on their arrows and only to opposing color spaces on the board. Masters can move anywhere in the direction their arrows face.

It seems very basic, but a glance I can see the many, many possibilities of moves and can imagine this being the missing link between checkers and chess (neither of which have a sweet logo).

Check it out:

There is a long way to go for Pivit to hit it's lofty $50,000 goal, but there is still a few weeks. You can pledge $40 to receive the discs (along with rules, etc) to play on your existing checkerboard, and then $50 for a full boxed version with a board.
