In this unfortunately little known book, only available in German, old game master Rudi Hoffmann presented with the help of Peter Neugebauer a collection of 25 paper and pencil games, all original (a seldom feat for compilations of the sort) and all on an 8x8 board (!). Since including all single games in the Rudi Hoffmann list would inflate it quite a bit (all of the games have got common elements) it seems more appropriate to gather them into a list of their own.

2-3 players have got to conquer square or rectangular areas within an 8x8 board to achieve the highest score (one point per square in each valid area): each turn they throw a dice and mark a bit of board consistent of as many squares as points were just thrown.

2-4 players have got to conquer fields forming straight lines within a strange 8x8 board [8 rows of 12341234] to achieve the highest score (one point per square in each line of four squares or more). Each turn they throw four dice and cross squares of the board with the points marked on each die (5 and 6 are duds).

2-4 players have got to score points filling whole rows or columns of an 8x8 board by crossing them with a single straight line of their own colour, or by crossing lines made by the opponent. In each turn a player can draw a straight vertical or horizontal line of as many spaces as pips of a die throw as long as these spaces haven't been crossed both ways before. Play goes on until only single spaces are left to cross.

2 to 4 players aim to score as many points as possible by crossing existing lines of the opponent on an 8x8 board. Each player starts at one edge of the board (the starting field is the second to the right).

Each turn a player can draw in his colour a straight line crossing orthogonally one or two fields, or a bent line (one field crossed - corner on the next field - one field crossed). Spaces with corners or crossed both vertically and horizontally can't be crossed anymore. For each enemy line crossed a player scores one point. If one player's line can't be continued, they can start from another "free" square at their edge of the board. Play goes on until all players have used up their eight possible starting fields.

2 to 4 players must score the most possible points after marking the fifth dot (later cross) on a row or column of an 8x8 board.

A round consists of two phases: in the first phase players mark in turns a square on the board with a dot - the first one to mark the fifth square in a row, column or main diagonal scores as many points as dots drawn by the other players in that row, column or main diagonal. In the second phase players mark free squares in similar fashion but with crosses; the first player to mark the fifth cross in a row, column or main diagonal scores as many points as crosses drawn by the other players in that row, column or main diagonal.

2 to 4 players have to score the most possible points by filling as many spaces as possible in one row or column of the board. In each turn a player throws a die and marks one square on the board that keeps a distance equal to the dice throw from either their starting row (one side of the board) or one square already ticked with the player's symbol (dot, circle, square or cross; several symbols can coincide on one square) as long as all spaces in between are either free or marked with the player's symbol. The player to finish a row/column ends a round and gets an extra point; each space in the row/column scores a point for the player who marked it.

The game plays smoothly and certainly quickly (it should be enjoyed over several rounds to be fair), but it works better for three or four players than for two - here once a player has half a line filled there's no way to stop them.
