Description

ConHex is an abstract strategy game for two players. Both aim to complete a contiguous chain of connected cells between the 2 sides of their colour.

Cells are claimed by conquering them. In order to conquer a cell, players must surround it with pegs.

Rules

Each player has an allocated colour. The game is played in turns. On his first move, the second player may elect to swap colours (swap option). This is to prevent overly strong opening moves.

Each turn the current player places one of their pegs on an empty hole, which may conquer one or more cells. A cell is conquered by the first player to occupy at least half of its surrounding holes. A blue rectangle is placed on cells conquered by Blue, and a red rectangle is placed on cells conquered by Red.
The central cell, which has five holes, is conquered by the player who has occupied any three of these holes.
The first player that completes a contiguous chain of connected cells of his colour between the 2 sides of his colour wins the game.
