Try to capture as much territory as you can without any two adjacent territories having the same colour. What can I say? It sounds wank but it's just as addictive as Gamedesign's other game Dice Wars was.


Oh an apparently it's related to a maths problem. Fuck that shit, I say.

Can you post the free game of the week I suggested?

I haven't got one from you, I think.

Oh you mean the one in the thread? I can't retropost news items from threads. I'm afraid you blew that one.

Does it get any harder, or is it simply different patterns? I'm up to stage 11 and my basic strategy seems to be enough to beat the computer every time.

I got beat at level four a couple of times and then switched from a self-maximizing strategy to a minimizing the computer's area strategy and that got me to level 10 when I got bored. Almost inevitably I would be behind most of the game until the computer didn't have any good moves and I could pull way ahead in the end game.

It seems to cycle through smaller and larger patterns. The really large patterns and the really small ones were the easiest for me.
