Players attempt to link three edges of a special triangularly shaped board with stones of their color. Turns consist of placing a single stone, with turns strictly alternating. There is no movement or capture.

This game is a direct descendant of Hex. It is a predecessor of Star and *Star.

Generalized by Begird.

2 Artscow Game of Y board
This file is the same as the first, except that it has been lightened somewhat in order to print a little better. This second version is actually what is in place at the Artscow project link. The original file printed to my satisfaction, but some may prefer it less dark.
