The Game Board
The game can be played on a range of board
sizes. Size 19 ( 19 nodes along each edge ) should be the
minimum for serious play. With anything
smaller there will not
be opportunity for enough rounds of attack and counter-attack.
Note that boards with
sizes 19, 22, 25... ( incrementing in jumps of
three ) will have a node in the direct centre of the board. With other
sizes the board centre will fall
on the mid point between three touching nodes.
variation is to play on a board that has pentagons along the
corner axes. There is good logic for this configuration. The reduced
number of nodes along an edge will make it easier for a player to
defend a side against a centre attack.
