Description Edit | History

A 2-player abstract strategy game in the vein of Pente or Othello. Four types of stones are arrayed on a 9x9 board: earthstones, suns, moons, and crowns. One player plays the suns, and the other player plays the moons. Players take turns removing stones or groups of stones from the board. A player may make one of three moves:

  1. removing one earthstone,
  2. removing one of their own stones, or
  3. removing all of the stones in an unbroken line between two empty board spaces.

Players score based on the type of stone removed: 1 point for an earthstone, 2 points for an opposing player's stone, and 5 points for a crown. The first player to reach 50 points wins.

The product is available in PDF format and includes rules for using the game as a MacGuffin in a role-playing game but is itself a stand-alone strategy game.
