Stephen discusses Onitama:

A chess-lite game played on a 5×5 grid (instead of an chess 8×8).  And, instead of pieces having assigned moves (like bishop always moves diagonally) the available ways a piece can move are dictated by cards.  You have two cards in hand to choose from.  There’s a card “on deck” about to come into your hand.   You can use those cards to move any of your pieces.

“We love it because it took about 5 minutes to learn, it takes about 10 minutes to play.  But the depth is amazing.  We could play for years – getting better all along.”.
