The pieces are circles or any other sort of counter. Each player has a different color.
To move: Slide a piece into any square on the top right and top left of the diamond. If there are pieces in that row, slide them over unless the row is filled, in which case the player may not place any more pieces.
To win: Connect 3 in a row in any direction.
Each player picks a different color to play as. Whoever is the first player makes a legal move as described above. Players alternate performing legal moves until someone wins.

- Misere: Force opponent to connect 3 of his or her pieces in a row.
- No Filled Row Restraint: Even when a row is filled, a player is allowed to place a piece in that row. The piece at the end of the row is slid off the board and discarded.
