Has the wooden Kadon edition - beautiful craftwork! It's a really good abstract game as well, and doesn't just look good. Plenty of strategy and tactics, and always having to weigh immediate territory towards influence and connection possibilities.

Challenging abstract which requires balancing connection and territorial elements.

There is obviously a first turn advantage - may lower my rating a litte when I've played the game more.

Rating after only a couple plays on the inner board. Will likely go up to a 10 after more plays.

I have known about this game for a few years, but have had a terrible time finding opponents. I feel like it could be one of the best abstract games invented/discovered in at least a hundred years. It deserves to be far more widely known than it is.

Fans of Go and/or connection games especially need to try *Star.

Deep. Interesting. A very enjoyable 2-player abstract game.

I sketched out my own board (only 7 spaces per outer edge for now because my sheet of paper is too small) to try it out. I like it, and recommend the smaller board to learn but not for long-term play. It neatly melds senses of area control and connection objectives.

A game derived from hex trough poli-hex. The rules are really simple once you get and hang of them, but they seemed a little difficult to explain.
Not using the "official" nomenclature and using parallels with go helped a lot.
I am sure the strategy is very deep, but there are not many players, so everybody is essentially a newbye.

More going on than Y, but I'm not certain whether I like or dislike that. Of course, I have played Y hundreds of times, and *Star only a few.

I love Y, and the inventor prefers *Star to Y, so very promising...
