Nudge™ is an incredibly simple yet insanely addictive abstract strategy game, designed to send you or your opponent over the edge – three discs each, two moves per turn, one wrong move and it could be game over!

How it works:

Find a good pub, sit down with your friends, open the box and flip a disc to decide who starts- to Nudge, or not to Nudge, that is the question. Players then take it in turns to make two moves each turn – yes, two moves each turn!

Individual discs can move one square at a time or two squares with your two moves, either forwards, backwards or sideways and in any combination of these, but no disc can ever be moved diagonally.

Rows of linked discs can be moved together lengthways, like train carriages, one square at a time, which counts as one move, but you can’t move rows widthways –  see examples below.

To nudge an opponent’s disc, you have to out-number them lengthways – 2 against 1 and so on.

The game ends when you nudge an opponent’s disc off any edge of the board. It’s as simple as that. Then you rack it up and you play again – and again and again, until closing time!

Doing our bit and giving something back

Okay, we know that a board game isn’t going to make the world a better place, but we can take a position of responsibility for our work and that’s what we’ve done. We decided to make Nudge™ with as little environmental impact as possible, you know, less stuff for landfill and more stuff to reuse, so the discs are made from fully biodegradable starch-based bioplastic which is really cool stuff. When left exposed to the elements, mother nature will welcome her potato-based children back into her arms within 3 to 6 months. We chose a debossed instead of printed fully recycled greyboard for the gameboard and the carton is FSC certified fluted kraft board. The print is intentionally single colour to minimize production and help reduce environmental waste.

We’re even donating 1% of all game sales to The Woodland Trust because this game wouldn’t be possible without trees.

Thanks again for your support and much love from the Nudge Creative Team.
