Solid Abstract strategy tic-tac-toe variant.
October 03, 2002

Someone blasted this game as being bad, because it was an abstract strategy title. Come on. Not all games are theme driven, and some have the theme slapped on. This is one of them. It doesn't make it bad, just an abstract strategy game. I have the game and find it interesting to play.

By the way, this game is actually a commercial version of a game Planks, that is fairly old. By buying this version, you actually get a game with its own components.

Should be ZERO star: no theme, no gameplay
December 03, 2000

This game has nothing to do with computers, or hacking, or programming, or anything. It's a purely abstract positional game that's supposed to be a step up from tic-tac-to by including a growing board and limits on placement.

Unfortunately, unless we really seriously misunderstood something in the rules, we came up with a forced win in 4 moves. Period. The placement limits would only start affecting play after a certain number of pieces are down, and the first player wins before that occurs, because the growing board allows a fork in two directions.

Don't bother. Go get Labyrinth Kartenspiel or Quiddler instead.
