Simple rules quick rounds and rather subtle tactics: Pylos is one of the strangest yet most beautiful abstract games on the market today and winner of several Game of the Year awards around the world. The object is to save your marbles so that you can be the one to place a marble at the very top of the pyramid. Pylos is irresistibly attractive as both a game and a decorative object.

I like the strategic decisions that players are challenged to make in this game. The game has a very difficult strategy to master, and I enjoy trying to figure it out. The natural tendency of most players is to continue fighting for the high ground, but this can often be a less sensible move when a player would be better served trying to form squares. It's a beautiful game to look at as well and would be my game of choice if I had one on display.
Not much to it, maybe not the deepest game, but simple and engaging
I usually have no interest in abstract games. Got this as a gift, and its a blast! Also doesn't hurt that it looks nice just sitting out, and gets people to play it.
