Elegant Geometric Strategy

How to play

  • Objective

    The game is won when a player surrounds their opponent on every side of their colored space or spaces with their own colored spaces. It is possible to tie in this game.

  • First Move

    The game starts with a player selecting any triangle space on the board. Players then alternate in selecting one space at a time until there is either a win or a tie.

  • Subsequent Moves

    A player must select a space that shares a side (not a connecting point) with an already selected space. The space selected can share a side with either their own space, or their opponent’s space.

  • Tips on Winning

    A border space can never be surrounded, therefore, any spaces of the same color connected to a border space of the same color is safe from being surrounded.

    Selecting a square space over a triangle space gives you more coverage in over powering your opponent.

    Creating pockets (empty spaces surrounded by your spaces) is a good strategy for winning.
