This is just what it seems: a raw, unoriginal mix of the placement and movement rules of Slither and the goal and capture mechanism of Go, with area scoring. I've played it against myself a few times and really enjoyed it. I'd post the full rules if necessary, but you get the idea.

It's interesting to note that this is most likely a soft-finite game, i.e. while it's not theoretically free of cycles, I don't think sensible play will ever lead to them. At least, I haven't been able to construct a single counter-example so far.

Also, while captures are less frequent than in Go, the movement rules make it more tactical nonetheless.

What do people think of this game? Have you ever tried it?
