Game play

On their turn, each player must place a line over the grid (one of the sides of a square). If a player can close a square, he/she will score some points and will have the turn again. The square completed will appear filled with its color (blue or red).

The game ends if...

  • The game finishes when no players can reach another one on the scoring. Except if there is still a “car” or a “rabbit” on the board (see below)
  • There are not free squares anymore.

-1 Subtracts 1 point from the scoreboard of the player who fills this square.
+2 Adds 2 points to the scoreboard.
