Contiguity, A Stonehenge Abstract Strategy Game by Rich Hutnik
Contiguity is an adaptation of my game Groups to Stonehenge.
Number of players: 2
Object of the game: Connect all of pieces into one orthogonally connected contiguous group of pieces.
Equipment: Game board (each number space of outer ring is divided up into four spaces). 6 red disks. 6 white disks.
Setup: Set up 6 red and 6 white disks on board on the 29, 30, 1, and 2 spaces, of the outer ring, as follows:
## wd rd ##
wd rd wd rd
29 30 01 02
rd wd rd wd
## rd wd ##
rd=red disk. wd=white disk. ##=empty space
Only one disk is allowed on each space. The day-night spaces as part of a number, are considered one space in this game.
Playing the Game
White goes first. Randomly pick who will play white.
Each player alternates turns moving one of their pieces until one player wins.
Pieces have two types of moves, a slide or a jump:
A slide move consist of moving a piece vertically (towards the inside of the outer track or towards the outside) or horizontally (to a space of a larger or smaller number) an unlimited number of spaces until it lands on a desired empty space. A piece may slide through multiple empty spaces but NOT an occupied space. A piece also may not land on the same space it started its turn on.
A jump move consists of a piece jumping over a single piece of either player, vertically or horizontally and landing on an empty space. A jump is like a slide, except the jumping piece is sliding through an occupied space. A piece may not jump over more than one piece.
Ending the Game
The first player to get all 6 of his pieces into one orthogonally connected contiguous group of pieces (vertically and/or horizontally adjacent) wins the game.
OOO OOO (Two groups)
OOOO (Diagonally connected)
Variant (Recommended): Players alternate turns bidding less each turn for how many turns they can win the game in. Player who bids the least declares whether they will go first or second. If they fail to make their bid, they lose.
