Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So i've recently remembered a game I played years ago, but can't remember the name and so can't beging to find it.
I've no idea if it was an actual boardgame or just that I just played it on a computer but here goes:
It was played on a chess/checkers board.
Each player takes turns placing a circular disk piece onto any square.
Once a piece is placed on a square, that square belongs to whoever placed it.
Then, you keep filling your square up to 5.
As soon as a square has 5 pieces 4 are moved to the surrounding squares in a cross pattern.
Eventually, as the board fills up, an 'exploding' square can lead to a chain reaction colouring many squares into your/your opponent's colour even if they were the opposite.
Obviously the goal is to make your opponent run out of peices.
