About us



The game of the old nobility.  First found in what is now called China, the ancient war game has been a top favorite for centuries.  This is a classic example of a very simple game which has very few true masters.  A few hours to learn how to play, a lifetime to master.

The Captain, King of the seas.

The Mermaid, Queen of the seas
Here is a stunning example of a classic Mermaid.  She rules the sea with a delightful look and unerring skill.  Far and away the most powerful piece to play.

Tall Ship, Bishop of the sea
When at sea, we need the right answer, and that is a great tall ship.  Just a fun piece to work from and a pleasure to play with

The Seahorse, Knight of the sea
When at sea, who but a seahorse to provide the knights services?  One of the best looking pieces like this we have produced

Lighthouse, Castle of the Sea
The light station, or Lighthouse, the true Castle of the sea.  Many a sailor owes his life to the information provided by a light, and it is the perfect castle for the classic game.

Dolphin, pawn of the sea
Any who have gone to sea can understand why the Dolphin is the perfect pawn selection.  Fun loving and they love to spend time with man and his ships.  They provide the perfect pawn of the sea.
