Codinca – is our much-acclaimed pocket strategy boardgame. It can be played literally anywhere, on a plane, in a cafe or on holidays. And it fits in your pocket or bag.

Out of stock



Shortlisted in the top three best new Abstract Games at the 2012 UK Games Expo, Codinca is a quick 2-4 player simple strategy game.

Deep within the rain forests of the Yucatan rival teams of treasure hunters have recently discovered the lost city of Codinca. In the centre of the once great citadel stands a stone temple. Local legends tell of the great treasures that lie buried beneath the temple.  Despite many months of searching no doorway or entrance has been found. Can you crack the code and be the first to unlock the secrets of Codinca?

Codinca Tiles Just like being at a real temple with movable stones, the tiles can be laid out in a matter of seconds on any flat surface. Each play uses either Earth, Wind, Air or water tiles. First of all, players try to complete their own code of four patterns using double-sided tiles to win the game.  In addition, they have each got three Spirit Cards which can be especially relevant to win a game.

The pocket-size version of the game was released at the 2016 UK Games Expo and hopefully, at some time it will be created into an app for android, iPhone, tablet, etc.

Most of all Codinca is a fun game, a mix of strategy and adaptability. With a little bit of craftiness included games will probably result in a lot of fun. Playing Codinca

    Still one of my go-to fast, simple strategy games after many years.

  2. Robert King (verified owner)

    This game is so easy to learn, but strategic to play. Even my non gaming parents like to play Codinca.

  3. Andrew Torrens

    Such a lovely little game. Nice and easy to learn and the pieces are a pleasure to play with

  4. Anthony Haigh

    Such an easy game to learn and teach! But don’t let it’s simplicity fool you, behind this simple game is a fiendishly competitive game. And works just as well with 2, 3 & 4 players! One game and you are hooked!
