Welcome

Welcome to the Syrtis blog. This is where you'll find Syrtis's origin story, conjectures about strategy, musings on the development process, and other quasi-related tidbits. 

If you're new to the game, welcome! My hope for Syrtis is that it will be a novel and absorbing strategic challenge. It's designed to be shorter than chess and more exciting than the typical tabletop abstract. Let me know whether you think it succeeds.

One of the things I like best about the game is the unexpected diversity of its tactics. Stay tuned for posts on various strategic and tactical maneuvers, and have a look at the puzzle pages (easy and not-particularly-easy). 

Enjoy!
