The Star Game And The Hebdomad


The Star Game And The Hebdomad



Although now mostly associated with the Order of Nine Angles, The Star Game (TSG) in its original septenary form is just a modern strategic and tactical game for two players: a more complicated type of chess which has been played as such for decades by a discerning few. This essay concentrates on the original 1975 Star Game, its hermetic origins and its significance as a challenging, modern, and alchemical game which can aid the hermetic quest (ἄνοδος) for Lapis Philosophicus.
