What is a septile? It’s a tile consisting of seven hexagonal tiles of varying heights as seen pictured above.
In the game of Jafabit you move player pieces around on a board that you build using seven (or more) septiles. This modularity allows for countless game-boards to play on.
Each tile within a septile has a color and a height. The colors are:
- Brown – Representing Farm-lands
- Green – Representing Forests
- Gray – Representing Mountains
- Red – Representing Lava Fields
- White – Representing Mountain Peaks
- Gold – Representing Gold Mines
There are four unique heights for Jafabit tiles. Tile height grants advantage and disadvantage to player pieces standing on them.
A Jafabit map is built by selecting a center septile and placing six support septiles around it. Each game of Jafabit comes with 2 unique center septiles and 9 support septiles (3 sets of 3 identical support septiles). There are hundreds of possible combinations. Mixing Jafabit sets results in even more!
