Petteia (meaning – Polis, City, Pessoi, etc.) is a competitive Ancient Greek game that bears a strong resemblance to the Japanese game Hasami Shogi, and also shares similarities with the Egyptian game Siga (or Seega).
A game loved by the Ancient Greeks, nowadays is most suitable for players, who appreciate a fair fight. It's driven, goal-oriented and requires sharp mind. Interesting: Aristotle, tutor to The Great, once wrote “a citizen without a state may be compared to an isolated piece in a game of Petteia”.
