Description Edit | History

A small game designed by Susumu Kawasaki.

A game for two players, Gauss: The Magnetic Duel is played on a small hexagonal grid.

Each player has a set fifteen tokens: ten in their color and five in the opposite color. Player take turns and each player may place one token per turn.

Like the poles of a magnet, tokens of opposite color are attracted to each other whereas tokens of like color are repelled by each other.

You score points if you connect 4 or more discs of your colour.
