Initial setup.

The 7 specially marked spaces (called “voids”) are handled like the center space of standard Attangle, i.e. no pieces can be placed there, capture moves across these spaces are allowed though.

Objective

  • A player building their fifth 3-stack wins.
  • A player loses if they have no moves left, i.e. no more pieces in hand and no capture moves on the board (like in the original game).
