Description Edit | History

In ZÉRTZ, the third addition to the GIPF Project, players compete to acquire sets of multi-colored balls. This is mostly accomplished by jumping one ball over one or more others, Checkers-style, on a hex board. A player's turn consists of either jumping (which can be forced) or placing any color ball on the board and removing an empty space from the edge of the board. In this manner, the play space continually shrinks, giving the endgame an almost claustrophobic feel.

This game is part of project GIPF.

11 One-page ZERTZ Rules
I made a DIY version of ZERTZ, and wanted all the rules on one page. Hopefully this is useful to someone else, too! It is printer-friendly, and includes pictures. I did some minor editing to clarify rules and keep them short, but everything should be effectively the same.
