Rithmomachy (or Rithmomachia, also Arithmomachia, Rythmomachy, Rhythmomachy, or sundry other variants; sometimes known as The Philosophers' Game) is a highly complex, early European mathematical board game. The earliest known description of it dates from the eleventh century. A literal translation of the name is "The Battle of the Numbers". The game is much like chess, except most methods of capture depend on the numbers inscribed on each piece.

This board game arrived on schedule and is to be given as a present. It was packed in a well-padded box and arrived in apparent good condition (see below). The vendor wrapped it for giving in beautiful paper with a gold ribbon, and it looks great! As such, it has not been opened yet. However, I have purchased this game for myself in the past, and Buxaina does excellent work. The game board is sturdily built, and the pieces are nicely made and clearly marked. I will be watching this store for other items to purchase.

Shipped quickly and arrived in the nick of time! Beautiful, high quality board game. The pieces are a little hard to read but we've spent several entertaining nights learning to play. Hours of mathematical fun await. Thank you!

A lovely, unusual product. Hard to find anywhere else. Slight imperfections, but these did not matter as it was a hand made product. Received promptly.
