Baladăna™ is a new and exciting
strategy game for two players.
In chess, the powers are cast.
Once a pawn, always a pawn.
In the court of Baladăna™,
the powers are yours to bestow.
The word baladăna
(pronounced b&-l&-'dä-n&
rhymes with "one-banana")
comes from the ancient
Pali language and means
'bestowal of powers' or
'gift of powers'.

There are some obvious similarities with chess, however Baladăna™ is more abstract and even more complex and dynamic.

The biggest difference is that while in chess the way each playing piece can move is always the same, in Baladăna™, the way figures can move is dynamic, determined by their 'powers'. The configuration of these powers represented by the colored rings is updated throughout the game - players can change the position of one ring as part of each move, placing up to 3 rings on any figure. When more rings of different colors are placed on a figure the powers combine and as the game progresses, you can gradually build up more and more powerful figures.
