Phwar (short for Phase War) is an abstract game of war for two or three players. The board is a hexagonal grid of hexagons. Each player owns four negative particles (electrons), four positive particles (positrons) and one neutral particle with zero charge (neutron). Aim: The game is won by the last remaining player.

A fundamental change to the victory conditions has been implemented here. The first person to occupy the central hex (F6) with their neutron will also win the game.

Aaron -2 Broken, I'm afraid.

Keith -2 Broken, broken, broken. Captures can't be forced in the two player game. Simply move the piece any direction any distance out of the way or move any piece in line with the attack.

The sad thing is Cameron produced a Zillions version and with one playtest game could have shown it was broken and fixed it rather than publish it.
