How to play


The player, who brings all tiles of his color into the board first, wins.
Start the game by inserting one of your tiles anywhere on the board regardless of the direction.
The red-brown tile, pushed out of the board, is taken out of the game. Now it is the second player’s turn. Insert one of your tiles on the board.


The three major rules:
If there is an opponent‘s tile in the selected row, you are only allowed to insert your tile, if the sum of your pips including the pips of the chosen tile, is higher than the opponents sum in that row. Blank tiles have the value zero and do not increase the sum of the pips.
If a player‘s tile is pushed out of the game during a turn, it must be taken back by the player of the respective color and brought back into the game.
Every player is compelled to move, which might mean your are forced to push out one of your own tiles and take it back.
The game continues in this manner.
The player who inserts the last tile on the board, wins and ends the game.
