For a flipping good time, try beating Iago.
It's a two-player game, but you can also play against the computer.
The rules are like the game of Reversi, but played on a hexagonal board:
The two players (white and black) alternately place a piece on an empty cell. When a piece is played, it flips to the player's color all the opponent's pieces in a straight line from the piece played to another piece of the player's color.
|For example, playing a black piece at the arrow:|
|flips the pieces with red dots, and results in:|
Furthermore, a piece may only be played where it can flip some of the opponent's pieces. If there is no such cell, the player loses a turn.
When neither player can move, the game is over.
The player with more pieces on the board is the winner.
