Probably an academic question, but anyway...

What will happen if it's your move but you have none of your 12 playing pieces left, because they are all on the board without having the majority anywhere?

Do you have to skip your move or do you lose the game immediately?

In case this helps, on the main page screen for C-Cross, in the description of the game, it says if your opponent is unable to move on their turn, you also win.

Hoping to get my copy of this wonderful looking game soon.

Thanks Arthur,

Indeed I missed that sentence. I also checked my rulebook and there it is also - the last sentence on the last page.

Played it three times today. It's not only good looking it's also much fun!

Cheers,
Marcus

Hey Marcus:

Glad I could be of help. I have a question for you, as I've not seen the office rules of this game yet. When connecting two sides of the board, does it include top to bottom as well as the side to side areas?

Thanks,

Arthur Reilly

Yes, you can connect top/bottom or left/right, as you like. Also, both players can pursue the same goal. You don't have to tell your opponent what you try to connect.

Thanks. That sounds really cool. My order has been placed with Gerhards und Spiel & Design already, just need it to show up. Can't wait.

Thanks again, and keep enjoy the game.

I've just uploaded the rulebook in english so everybody could have a look inside to read the rules. Just wait admin's agreement.

Look forward to see the rules. That was nice of you to upload them. Will keep an eye out for them.

I also ordered "Lot" and "Trideo" from the same company, in case you haven't checked those out yet.

You are really ordering them directly from Germany? That must be quite an amount of postage and customs fees for you to pay, not to mention the price of the games themselves...

That's what I call passion thumbsup

I also ordered all three from Connexxion 24. They arrived on Thursday; so far, I've only gotten to play Lot. The store is reliable, ships with tracking and usually is slightly less expensive than ordering directly from Spiele und Design, though honestly I didn't check on this order. I'm so used to ordering from them, they've become my go-to for Gerhards games, which I love.

Wow, I've never heard of Connexxion 24 before. Do you hopefully have a link to this site. I'd love to check it out.

Much Appreciated,

Sure -- Connexxion 24: https://www.connexxion24.com/index.php?language=en

I've used them for several years and never had a problem. It usually takes a month (give or take a few days) from when you order for the games to arrive at home in the States. They carry a lot of my favorite brands (Gerhards, Steffen Spiele). Also, I like the site is English, which obviously helps, and they accept PayPal.

Thank you very much. I'll have to check it out.
