Two talented brethren in England have come up with a new board game pitched specifically to Freemasons, called On The Square. This game originally got developed from a Kickstarter campaign, and it's now available for purchase.
The website explains the basics HERE:
On the Square is 2-6 player (Augmented) set-collection game based on establishing an English Freemasons meeting.
The aim of the game is to collect ceremonial items from around the board, whilst greeting the other officers in-order along the way, before returning to your seat to begin the proceedings. The first player to do so wins the game.
Using player boards to keep track of their items, players make their way around a game board laid out to accurately represent an English lodge with iconography taken directly from the Metropolitan grand lodge in central London. However, movement around this board is deceptively strategic.
The current price is UK £41.00, which translates to US $51.87.
During the month of May, the makers of On The Square have a special offer for customers:
