Tonga was the second-place finisher in the 2004 About.com Board/Card Games / Abstract Games Magazine Shared Pieces Game Design Competition.

It's played on a 9x9 board, and players compete to build islands in their own color. The game stops when there is no room for a new piece. At this moment, each player totals the squares of his three biggest isles. The winner is the one with the highest total.

nycavri 1 Enjoying my first couple of games. Interested to see if there's enough variation in repeated play.
Zotmeister 1 I'm no good at this and not sure how to get better, but it's fun all the same. Taiji is probably the way to go.
CDRodeffer 0 OK territory game.
