DVONN is played on an elongated hexagonal board, with 23 white, 23 black and 3 red DVONN-pieces. In the beginning the board is empty. The players place the pieces on empty spaces of the board, without restrictions. They place the DVONN-pieces first and their own pieces next. Then they start stacking pieces on top of each other. A single piece may be moved 1 space in any direction, a stack of two pieces may be moved two spaces, etc. A stack must always be moved as a whole and a move must always end on top of another piece or stack. If pieces or stacks lose contact with the DVONN-pieces, they must be removed from the board. The game ends when no more moves can be made. The players put the stacks they control on top of each other and the one with the highest stack is the winner.
DVONN can be played using TZAAR and the GIPF Potentials Set.
1. Print out two sheets of the PDF onto sticker paper.
2. perform a trial run, by placing the sheets over two pieces of A4 foamcore to find where the two sheet should lay centrally over the two boards.
3. Make sure the Hex edge of 'Sheet 2' has any blank border trimmed away.
4. Apply the uncut bottom 'Sheet 1' so it overhangs over the second piece of foamcore, and forms a hinge.
5. Line up the top 'Sheet 2', making sure the grid is aligned before finally applying it.
6. Once the sheets are in place, fold the board and apply a piece of duct or electricians tape to the rear of the hinge, to make it more sturdy.
I made these scoresheets to record my DVONN games with my usual gaming buddy. Each 8.5 by 11 landscape page accomodates 3 games. The first set of columns ("chess style" moves 1-25) are for Phase I. There is a special bolded block at the start for the DVONN piece setup and a grayed out space at the bottom for black's move 25 -- simulating a pass required by the rules. The second set of columns are for Phase II and are slightly wider to better accomodate two move locations. The header fields should be self explanatory -- "T/C" is for whatever Time Control may be in use and the spaces above this can be used for players' ratings. Enjoy.
