The first player starts the game by placing a piece from their hand onto a square on the outer edge of the board. Players then take it in turns to place pieces in unoccupied spaces.

Each piece dictates when your opponent must play next:

  • Straights: same row or column
  • Diagonals: in a diagonal line
  • Pusher: not adjacent
  • Puller: adjacent

If there are no spaces where you can legally play, you must pass. Your opponent is now free to play in any empty space.

Score a point for each line of three pieces of your colour. A line of four counts as two overlapping lines of three, so scores two points.

The game ends when a player cannot play because they have no more pieces.

Custom board:

-Official rules: game gaps between squares of the board block Straights and Diagonals

-Unofficial alternative rules: Straights and diagonals permit placement across gaps in the board
