Description

Jostle is a two player game. The 10x10 board is initially set up with 16 red and 16 blue checkers. Red and
Blue, take turns moving checkers of their own color, one move per turn, starting with Red.

Rules

OBJECT OF THE GAME The last player to make a move wins.

FRIENDLY AND ENEMY CONNECTIONS A connection, i.e. an orthogonal
adjacency between two checkers, is friendly if the two checkers are the same color and enemy if the two checkers are oppositely colored.

CHECKER VALUE A checker’s value is its number of friendly connections minus
its number of enemy connections.


MOVES A checker’s value must increase when it‘s moved. Move a checker to an
unoccupied, orthogonally adjacent square.

There is no capturing in Jostle, only jostling.
