I noticed that there are no rules posted on here.

Do pieces only capture in a diagonal direction?
Pieces only move one space forward and diagonally forward, right?
Are these the only rules?

(The Weblinks section has a link to the rules: http://boardgamegeek.com/weblink/4777/rules-for-breakthrough )

Yes: move forward 3 directions, capture diagonally forward. Reach the far side and win! Simple rules, interesting game.

Thanks! I stumbled onto this game by accident, and I was intrigued. Abstracts with the simplest rule sets are my favorites. Also, I am always looking for more ways to use my Looney Pyramids

What do you think of Breakthrough? Is it a game my wife and I will get a lot of play out of? We tried Lines of Action and LOVED IT! Is it sort of like that?

I like it and I go through phases of playing it at littlegolem.net. (I think I've never played it face to face.)

It's certainly trivially easy to learn the rules and quick enough to play a test game, so I think it's worth giving a try.

It is no Lines of Action, but it a satisfying little game for a change of pace. I do like the "simplest ruleset" aspect.
