Ice Fu is an interesting 2-player game, inspired by Tai Chi. Players build trigrams using randomly drawn pyramids of only two colors. For each trigram there is an equal and opposite trigram. In a battle of attrition, trigrams are matched together until one player is out of trigrams.

Designed by Glenn Overby, 2005.
