Oust is played with a Go set. The board starts out empty in Oust, and the object is to capture all of your opponent’s on-board stones, a paradox. Draws and ties cannot occur in Oust.

Aaron 1 I like the forced conflict avoidance. It makes for a very bloody endgame.
Zargasheth 1 Very clever, interesting game in theory. In practice, it gets a bit unfun: the strategy is highly nonintuitive, moving almost always makes your position worse, and the endgame is usually a foregone conclusion by the time you get there. (But not always! I was once on the losing end of an amazing turnaround.) Still, I quite enjoy playing it.

nycavri 0 Wonderful idea/premise, but in practice I was very disappointed. Game is decided before the endgame.
Zotmeister 0 I respect this game, but don't "get" it. Apparently works much better on a hex grid.
