Totems is a new board game featuring: maps, topology and of course strategy! If you enjoy Risk, Carcassonne, Go, Stratego, or even Uno or Solitaire, you will love the “easy-to-learn, hard-to-master” fun of this game.

@ 148 Apps: “It’s addicting, a pleasure to play, and has earned a permanent spot on my device.”

@ App Advice: “It is heavy on strategy, but light on rules... you will be guaranteed endless amounts of fun.”

@ Pocket Tactics: “Totems manages to challenge some of the basic assumptions of strategy gaming with it’s all-or-nothing take on territory control, while still being simple enough to learn in an afternoon. For that alone, it deserves to plant its standard on your iDevice’s shores.” Score: 5 of 5!

@ App Store: Featured by Apple in "Best New Games!"


The game design is derived from the world-famous “4-Color Map Theorem”. The randomness of the totems in your ‘hand’, the changing colors of the territories, the variety of the maps, and the cleverness of your opponents will all conspire to make each turn a fun and interesting challenge.

The object of the game is to place carved animal pieces (totems) on the map in order to claim territories. Each turn you will place matching totems on adjacent territories to expand your control of the map. The player who conquers the most territories when the map is full, wins. A game of Totems can be finished super-quickly or slowly, depending on your skills and your approach.

Nice game. Why no continuous updates? Need more online players otherwise online will lose its value

Light (but deep), quick strategy

You take turns with your opponent playing pieces that enlarge groups. The last player to place a piece owns that entire group. The trick, however, is that space is limited. You have to balance whether a group is better larger (but potentially not yours) and moving to either cut it off, starting another group. As the remaining space gets smaller the stakes over the groups surrounding those spaces gets higher. Frequently, the score is only finalized right near the end. Thank goodness for asynchronous multiplayer, but I'd love to see more players and more maps. Well worth $2 even if you only end up playing multiplayer with friends while waiting for food at a restaurant.

Fun and Strategic!

I was so sad when the iOS 11 update made this game stop working. And given how long ago the last update came out, I thought for sure I had lost my favorite game! Fortunately they’ve updated and I can continue to enjoy my favorite iOS game. It’s fun at any player count and shockingly strategic and smart. I love board games and it captures the essence of a thinky abstract so well.
