Sign System

a game of signs, writing and language for all ages with no limits and no rules

Sign System, a game created by smarin, is a set of elements composed of seven different shapes.
Two straight lines that are thick and slightly curved, one big and one small, a semi circle in the shape of a croissant, a circular plate, two curved pieces, and a dot. These archetypal forms of a figurative and / or ornamental vocabulary, translated into small manipulable objects, allow a game without any limitations. It is about signs, writing, language, and non-verbal communication.
