WEDNESDAY June 19, 2013

Just a travel day. We flew down to Atlanta and arrived at the hotel around 8:30 or 9pm. I'm sure there were some people gaming already, but we decided to just relax in our room and take it easy.

Black starts, placing a piece anywhere on the initially empty board.

White then does the same.

Thereafter, each player's move has two parts: move a piece two or more in any unobstructed line, orthogonally or diagonally, then drop a piece on the last square passed over. If all 9 pieces have been placed, the player first makes the move and then picks up any of his already-dropped pieces and drop it behind the moved piece.

For example, on an empty board, a piece on a1 could move to a3 (dropping a piece in a2) or a4 (dropping on a3) or d4 (dropping on c3) or e5 (dropping on d4).

Exception: to counterbalance going second, the second player may simply place a piece (rather than moving and dropping) on his second move.

The object is to get four (or five) pieces in a row, orthogonally or diagonally, or to block the opponent from moving.

Delta, Greater Vancouver regional district, British Columbia, Canada

Game Type: 1999 Non-wargame

Population: 102,655 as of 2005

Founded: first sighted by Europeans in 1791; it was incorporated in 1879.

Prior to European settlement, Delta's flatlands and coastal shores were inhabited by the Tsawwassen indigenous peoples. Located south of Vancouver, it is bordered to the south by Point Roberts, Washington, one of two exclaves of the contiguous United States, the other being the Northwest Angle in northern Minnesota. The completion of the George Massey Tunnel in 1959 ended Delta's isolation and resulted in a massive 400% population growth over the next 20 years.

Delta is another 4-in-a-row game with an interesting movement/placement mechanic. It's fast-paced and aggressive.
