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