Number of Players: 2 to 6
Objective: To be the last player left in the game.
1 Numerix board
3 Ordinary six sided dice
6 Playing pieces per player
Each player starts with all of their pieces in front of them and off the board.
Players each roll 3 dice, the highest rolling taking the first turn, play then proceeding clockwise.
In your turn:
First roll the 3 dice.
You may then do one of two things:
PLACE ONE OF YOUR PIECES ON THE BOARD, on a square of the same number as one of the dice rolled.
MOVE ONE OF YOUR PIECES ALREADY ON THE BOARD, to any ADJACENT square of the same number as one of the dice rolled.
If at any point you have 3 pieces in squares adjacent to an enemy piece, you capture that piece.
If at any time you have only 3 pieces left, you are out of the game and your remaining pieces removed from the board.
If you can possibly take your go, you must.
Captures and moves may be made to ANY of the eight orthogonally or diagonally adjacent squares.
You MAY NOT move or place a piece into an already occupied space.
YOU MAY NOT move or place a piece into a space where it would be captured immediately, even if doing so would allow you to capture a piece.
When playing a game with only two-players, it is recommended you use 9 playing pieces per player instead for a longer, more tactical game.
If playing with four or six players, team games become possible. To play in this way, players have their own pieces and turns as normal, but may work together to capture opposing teams pieces. The last team still in the game wins.
