Elektrodo 2 Maybe the deepest abstract game with the simplest rules after Hex.

nycavri 1 Enjoying figuring out different strategies here.
spearjr 1 Moves are non-intuitive at first, as you may want to move more of your opponents' pieces than your own in the early game. Later you want to setup areas where you can get your pieces on top of stacks of 5, or smaller, if they cannot be capped by your opponent.

Should be playable with a DVONN or checkers set, if you printed a board.
molnar 0 I was disappointed; I'll try out the other stacking games beginning with A, and then get back to this one (maybe).
