This game is played on the following
- Each player has one center piece (in the diagram, the
marked stone), six strike pieces (the other stones in the first row)
and six support pieces (the red stones for Black, the green stones
- A connected set of friendly pieces.
- On the first three turns, Black moves 1, 3 and 5 times, while
White moves 2, 4 and 6. On the remaining turns, each player moves 6
For each strike piece adjacent to his center piece, the player loses
one turn move.
strike or support piece may move to an adjacent empty cell, or
to a cell (either empty or occupied) adjacent to the group it
belongs. In the second option, if it moves to an occupied cell
it displaces the other piece (either friendly or not) to the
cell it came from.
pieces cannot move, they can only be displaced.
||GOAL - Wins the player
that surrounds the opponent's center piece with his strike pieces.
I placed this game on the Towers section, since
there are 3 types of pieces that can be emulated by stacks of different sizes.
Some strategy tips from the author: (a)
Get your strike pieces in as quickly as possible adjacent to the opponent's
centrepiece - thereby reducing his movements and paralysing his pieces. (b) Use
both your strike and support pieces to scatter your opponent's groups by
displacing his pieces to the ends of your lines. (c) Make sure that when you
attack you attack to great effect - otherwise you’ll be left too close to your
opponent's pieces, and your pieces will be scattered on the next turn.
