An AI opponent is available for this game!

This 2-player abstract is played on an 11x11 board. Attacks are initiated by 'squaring' your opponent, or in other words, forming a rectangle with 3 of your pieces and one of your opponent's. Doing so converts the squared piece to your colour. You win by either converting all but two of your opponent's checkers or by occupying the three centre squares on your opponent's far row. This game won the Mensa Society's "Mensa Select" award in 1993.

Zotmeister 0 The designer's first game, and it shows. It's not bad. It's just, you know, not impressive.

nycavri -1 Another game I just can't seem to grasp.
Cerulean -2 After reading the rules, you'd think pieces will end up all over the place, and there will be all these nifty chain reactions to watch... but you'd think wrong, then. Sadly, the real game is like trench warfare.
