First Sample Zendo Pieces

Andy Looney posted some pictures of the First Sample Zendo Pieces for the upcoming new release and … they aren’t all pyramids! What is this black magic?!

We’ve just passed a major milestone in the production of our new edition of Zendo: the first samples of actual pieces have arrived from the factory, and they look terrific!

Here are a bunch of photos, showing the pieces in various different arrangements. For size reference, the pyramid is the same size as a 2-pip piece from Pyramid Arcade.

I’m so excited to have these pieces in hand. After years of pondering options and trying out 3-D printed prototypes, it’s kind of amazing to have actual finished pieces in hand. They look so good, and they’re so much fun to stack up and play with!

The other elements of the game (box design, cards, rulebooks, etc.) are all done, so with the approval of the pieces, Zendo is officially at the printer. Woo-Hoo!

Also, consider that new shapes mean, wait for it … new game design options for Looney Pyramids! I’ll have a fully functional Sleestak pylon control panel now, for sure!
