Numica uses a standard chess board (an 8×8 square grid).
Capture Opponent's pieces. Either:
- 2 Square pieces & 2 Round pieces or
- 3 Square pieces or 3 Round pieces.
On your turn you may move 1 of your pieces. How the piece moves is determined by the Tile it is on. If the Tile Symbol is a number, the piece moves exactly that many Spaces in a straight line, orthogonally or diagonally and It jumps over other pieces. If the Symbol is a K, the piece moves like a knight in chess. If the symbol is an X, the piece may move to any empty Space on the board. If your piece lands on an opposing piece, you capture it. You may never land on one of your own pieces. If you are ever unable to move, you automatically lose.
