There are a number of ways that Zanoba is different. Perhaps the best way to think about it is to compare it with Chess. It is the same kind of thinking game as Chess but, in my opinion, it’s not only different but easier to learn and quicker to play, although just as intense. The board is an unusual design that makes you think in new ways. Besides that, it's my intention and hope that Zanoba will be not just a game but a way to promote a healthy lifestyle and and thinking skills that will be beneficial to all players.
