Players take turns to place their atoms on the board, causing explosions and chain reactions which convert enemy atoms to your own colour. The object of the game is to overwhelm the board.
The simple rules of the game give rise to complex and unpredictable reactions which keep you coming back for more.
How to play
Each player has a colour and the players take turns to place a single atom on the board.
Players may only place atoms on empty squares or squares containing atoms of their own colour.
If a corner square (one with only two sides exposed) contains two atoms it will explode. placing an atom in each adjacent square.
If a side square (one with three sides exposed) contains three atoms it will explode placing an atom in each adjacent square.
If a middle square (one with four sides exposed) contains four atoms it will explode placing an atom in each adjacent square.
If a square explodes placing atoms on a square filled with enemy atoms those atoms will now be possesed by the player.
If a square explodes placing atoms on a square so that it becomes too full of atoms it will also explode. This can happen many times in one turn as a chain reaction.
The goal is to own all the atoms on the board. Players who have lost all their atoms may no longer take turns.
