I have three related games each played in one dimension:

Round&Round is played on circular tracks:



In&Out is played on inward and outward tracks:



Up&Down is played with stacks on the individual spots:



Each of the dimensions are bounded in a different way:
the round&round tracks have neither beginnings nor ends.
The In&Out tracks have ends, but there are no "edge" tracks.
The Up&Down stacks must be populated from one side only (can't fill an arbitrary spot in a stack--it must build from the bottom)

So each of the games is slightly different (though the goals are always the same).

Plus they can be combined arbitrarily (into all 7 possibilities):
1,2,3) Each game by itself.
4) Round&Round&Up&Down are the rules from the 2 underlying games at once.
5) Round&Round&In&Out
6) Up&Down&In&Out (yes, I know how it sounds!)
and
7) Round&Round&Up&Down&In&Out: all rules in effect at once.

So the board looks like all of the boards at once:



What do you think?

Rules for R&R&U&D&I&O
These are 2-player, abstract, pure-strategy games. One player is blue, one is red. You may only add men to the spots that are within your territory: Red must always introduce pieces onto the board in the red area, Blue must add pieces in the blue. The goal is to get one of your pieces into the territory of the other person.

How the pieces move is dependent on which game(s) are in effect. For all games, pieces on spots of the same color can move farther in a move than pieces on opposite colors.

The pieces of each game can play "through" each other when multiple games are in effect because the pieces of each game connect to each other. But these connected pieces can move with either "power." This way, new avenues of play are available to sneak a piece in: for example getting an up&down piece closer by using a round&round move when the piece has both up&down & round&round pieces connected.

Cool?
