  • A game designed by William Fulke (who also created metromachia) in the 16th C., and related in theme and concept to the older game of rythmomachia. The name joins the Greek ouranos and machia and signifies a battle or conflict of the heavens, the game having an astronomical basis, as contrasted against the arithmetical basis for rythmomachia and the geometrical basis of metromachia.
