Andatino is played on a hexagonal tiled infinite plane, let's use a hexagonal 10x10 board:

  • TURN - On the first turn, White drops a stone on an adjacent empty cell to the Black stone. After that, each dropped stone must be adjacent to at least two other stones (either color).
  • GOAL - Wins the player that achieves one of the following things:
    • Makes a 5 in a row of his own stones;
    • Fully enclose one or more enemy stones inside 6 or more of his own stones.
An example

If White plays at cell [1] to prevent a 5 in a row threat, Black can reply at cell [2], starting to enclose that white stone. 

There is a ZRF to play Andantino with Zillions. It's possible to play Andantino on Richard's PbM game server!
