I did not understand how I should change polarities.
- Must I put the same polarity to surrounding discs ?
- If it is all about polarity, must I invert polarities, i.e. I put a positive disc so all surrounding discs become negative ?

Thanks :-)

Sorry for the confusion. If for example you place a positive disc down all surrounding discs with rings would change to the polarity of the placed disc. All surrounding discs having the same polarity as the placed disc remain unchanged.

Hope this helps.

Check the rulebook. I think it's clearer:

"When a disc is placed, change the polarity of all surrounding discs to the polarity of the played disc (by adding or removing rings accordingly)."

So if I put a positive disc next to other possitive discs, nothing changes ?

Oh I just played this (using different game bits) and we played it totally wrong! We changed polarities of all surrounding disks. So we felt the game is stupid.

I now re-read it and it is still a bit confusing sentence. It is probably the case that need an extra sentence for an example with a figure in the rule.
