On The Square

On The Square is 2-4 player board game with some unique and fascinating mechanisms. Play as an officer of the Lodge, setting up for a ritual. Collect the tools of each degree to become Master.

On The Square is a new game based on the mysteries and secrets of Freemasonry.

Lots of playability, multiple characters and a unique game mechanism that add an exciting strategic edge to traditional roll and move gameplay. Superbly designed and illustrated, quality components, robust and well tested.

On The Square is a traditional, easy to understand and exciting game.

You play as one of the 6 senior officers of the lodge to collect the tools of the three degrees while advancing through the game in the proper steps.

Listen out for gavel knocks, lead candidates around and go on the square to reach the goal of Worshipful Master.

The gavel strikes! The Worshipful Master commands that you prepare yourself properly to enter the lodge in the correct degree and advance by the proper steps. Taking your rightful position in your officers’ seat.

As the lodge door opens and you are admitted by the Tyler and Inner Guard you must progress around the lodge, through each of the three degrees. Collect the tools of your degree to show your progress and collect the secrets and mysteries of each officer of the lodge.

During your time in the lodge you are required to obey all the summonses from the secretaries and heed the advice of the Seniors. Visiting brethren will be on hand to help you progress.

At times you will have the opportunity to go “on the square” and use your tactical skill, whilst moving in the proper form, to advance.

From time to time you will have the opportunity to introduce a new candidate to the lodge, it is your duty to guide them thoughtfully throughout and when you have completed your journey you must immediately take your officers seat and you can become Master of your lodge.

That company behind the game is Matthew & Michael, a new UK game publisher who had postponed the release of their newest board game, “On The Square”, out of respect for all of those struggling to get through the most difficult stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, now that we have finally ‘flattened the curve’ and the world is opening back up, Matthew & Michael have released their latest board game on the popular crowdfunding site, Kickstarter. At 10:00AM GMT, on June 2nd 2020, Matthew & Michael launched their crowd funding campaign for On The Square, a game about Freemasons.

Mike Hamilton for the company has stated that;

“The new launch date has given us some time to make minor revisions to On The Square and offer it at a much reduced cost from our original price point. With the world still recovering both emotionally and financially from the COVID-19 crisis, we felt it our duty to continue with the launch of our board game and offer it at the newly reduced price.”
