The types of games we play and the way we play them have evolved. Some of the earliest tabletop games - like chess, mancala, and senet - were games of strategy. Today, math, language, storytelling, and more help forge unique gameplay experiences for countless different games.
With just a pencil, notebook, and a set of dice, you can become a real estate tycoon, a wordsmith, or an adventurer on a quest. You can team with others to solve a mystery, or build the ultimate baseball team to crush the competition. The only limit is your imagination . . . and the rules of the game, of course.
Blackwing 20 celebrates tabletop games and the cherished moments they can create. Each pencil features a raised polyhedron design inspired by gaming dice and Blackwing's firm graphite that is perfect for keeping track of hit points, or tallying a final score.
