The Game's Up ...

2-player abstract strategy board game of movement, stacking and points accumulation.

COMPONENTS:  square game board of 36 squares in a 6-by-6 grid, twelve 2-sided pieces, bag, rules.  Each player begins the game with 4 of each piece which are numbered on either side (heads & tails) with: 1 & 6, 2 & 5, 3 & 4.


 OBJECT:  manipulate the pieces to stack up the most points by capturing  as many of the opponent’s pieces possible.  A stack consists of two or more alternating-colour pieces.  Ownership of a stack is determined by the  colour of the top piece.  Players agree on a target score - e.g. 13 or 21  points and, throughout the game, keep a tally of the top numbers on all the pieces in their respective stacks.  The first player to capture and stack sufficient pieces, to reach the pre-agreed total, is the winner ...

and the game’s up!
