Description

Steven Meyers' BoxOff has the feel of a classic solitaire abstract game. Brightly coloured pieces are distributed on a rectangular grid of squares and removed in pairs of like colour until the board is empty.

Rules

Start: The game starts with a piece in each cell, which defines the challenge to be solved.

Play: The player then makes a series of moves, each involving the removal of a pair of same-coloured pieces that occupy a box (rectangle) that includes no other pieces of any colour.

End: The player wins by removing all pieces from the board. Conversely, the player loses if there are no legal moves at any point while pieces remain on the board.
