FEMTO: Follow Up

Follow-up to the February Game Rules of FEMTO.


Stage: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

This Chinese game is a simple version of Wei ch'i or Go.

A game for two players

20 distinctive pieces such as coloured counters, coins, pebbles or shells for each player.
A board drawn like the one above - you may like to try marking this out in wet sand. 

To start: 
Use an empty board and take it in turns to place one of your pieces on one of the intersections on the board - these include where the red and blue lines meet the outer black circle. 

Aim of the game: to capture your opponent's pieces by surrounding them.

The game ends:  when there are no empty intersections where a piece can be placed or when a player has no pieces left to place.

The winner: is the player who has captured the most counters.
