Name Pippinzip (Zipline variant)
Description Pippinzip is a square-board connection game for two players. This is the 'Zipline' variant, and these rules are 'Freestyle', where there are no restrictions on the placement of Black's stones. The game starts with a chicken ballot phase similar to Unlur, in which players both place 1-3 White stones per turn until one decides to pass their turn and take White. Subsequently, White places one stone per turn, and Black places two stones per turn. The Black player ('Pip') wins if they connect any two sides of the board with a single orthogonally-connected group of stones. The White player ('Zip') wins if they connect all four sides of the board with a single group connected both orthogonally and diagonally.
