Entropy is a 2-player game representing the struggle between Order and Chaos. The Order player tries to organize their board in such a way to score the highest amount. Chaos, of course, attempts to thwart Order whenever possible.

This implementation provides a simultaneous environment where each player has their own Order board. Each player places a piece on their opponent's Order board and then makes a move on their own board, both players acting as both Order and Chaos. The player with the greatest score wins!

abdekker 2 One of the most elegant games you will ever play.
conillet 2 Among abstracts with a chance element, it's second only to the best game ever (Backgammon).

bigby 1 I like this game. It's fun playing the same pieces on two different boards.
CDRodeffer 1 I'm not very good at second guessing my opponent, nor at making patterns. But I enjoy Entropy anyway.

nycavri 1 Fun and fulfilling abstract. Love the simultaneous implementation here.
wyons 1 I think having 'simultaneous' moves is a great development. It gets around the luck factor and also makes chaos's play feel less unpleasant than if only one game is being played.
Cerulean 0 The simultaneous paradigm is the best way to play this.

Laurie_Menke 0 An enjoyable game, but a bit too long for SDG, in my opinion.
unic -2 Yuck - I found myself not enjoying this game at all! Some interesting ideas for sure, but I had absolutely no fun at all playing it, and thus will avoid it.
