A beautifully crafted 2-player abstract strategy game from Smirk & Laughter. Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board - or off the board's edge. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from just one of the four boards to win. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2020, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2020, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2020!
