PÜNCT is the final game of Project GIPF, a series of games that, as you probably know, was announced to consist of 6 games and a number of sets with additional pieces. GIPF, the central game of the Project, was initially released in Belgium in 1997. Now, 8 years later, the series is complete.
PÜNCT is a connection game: the goal is to link two opposite sites. On your turn, you either bring a new piece into play, or you move a piece that is already on the board. The more pieces you bring into play, the more possibilities you have to make a connection. But each time you put a new piece on the board, you reveal a bit of what your plan is. The trick is to place your pieces in such a way that your opponent will expect you to do something different from what you really have in mind. As such, PÜNCT is not only about making a connection, but also about misleading your opponent! You'll have to proceed subtly!

Counter strategy is also interesting. You must decide not only where to block but how, if a stack is involved you must decide which pieces will change elevation and how.
A wonderful game, with an fresh looking board and aesthetically pleasing gaming pieces. It is satisfying to see the project complete. Now we await the final set of potentials.
Note: The otherwise excellent rules have one ambiguity (in English translation): for "on one of your own pieces" read "over one of your own pieces" (i.e., always read the board from above, ignoring gaps in the vertical dimension).
