It took me forever to cut out the disks with scissors, but I did it! And had a quick two-handed game. The rules were clear, play was intriguing and quick, and I am looking forward to having a go with a second player. This weekend, I hope.

Played some more two-handed and had a couple of thoughts:
-- the rules probably should have the object of the game right up top.

-- I wonder if there should be a minimum size for a marooned group that is removed from the board. I removed a 9-disk group and it felt like it took the wind out of things and the game was over too quickly. Just a thought...

Can't make any changes to the rules now, but move it to the top.

Wow! 9-disks! Ok going to look into it, what would you suggest?

5? Just feels right at about 5. Four is too few, 6 might be OK. So 5.

Could you provide some pictures show what to do when you capture a tile? I'm don't understand how the groups work.

Hey Rey. I tried playing this with my daughter tonight but the board was WAY too small. I printed it on regular letter paper and the pieces were bigger than the hexes. We tried to play around it, but kept bumping everything and knocking pieces around.

I'm going to reprint on tabloid paper and try again. My daughter was pretty interested in the game and was excited to try it.

Image of the board with the pieces pretty crammed.

So sorry about that, I really wanted it to print across different sheets, but was so pressed for time.

Aren't the pieces disks? My hand-cut disks fit OK.

No worries. I'm printing a larger board and will give it another try.

I was too lazy for cutting out all the circles.
