OX was created in 2015 by Octavia Warren and Steve Ranson:
We love playing board games and going travelling and so wanted to create a game that was easily transportable and could be played in any of the places we visited.
What makes OX unique is its brilliant portability. OX is perfect for any game lover or traveller. Its pocketable nature means that you can play it anywhere and anytime.
OX is a two-player, portable, table-top game, which combines strategy and luck. The aim is to get all of your counters across the board before your opponent can – by moving the counters with each roll of the dice.
Depending on your roll, you can attack your opponent, defend yourself or simply move your counters across the board.
The game is inspired by some of our favourite games: Frustration, Backgammon and Draughts. We believe that the portability, ease of use and quality of OX are fundamental to the makeup of the game. We want OX to roll up easily like a tape measure and feel smooth and comfortable like a well-worn belt.
Over the last couple of years we have introduced the game to friends and family, and by popular demand we are trying to make the game available to a wider community. To do this, we need your help!
We launched OX on kickstarter in 1st October 2017 and were successfully funded in 4 days. We manufactured all of the OX sets for the Kickstarter between November and February and shipped all of the rewards out by the end of February 2018. You can see our Kickstarter campaign video at the bottom of this page.

Warning: the game is fast and addictive – the more you play it, the more you want to.
