Hello all,
9 is a board game put out by Nestorgames. They have a website with pictures and PDF rules you can download for over a dozen of their games. 9 is my first attempt to remake one of their games. I originally started making 9 months ago and had trouble with game ending scores. So it got put on the back burner. I finally dug it out and finished it. I also have a few more games I started months ago. I guess one day they'll get finished too.
9 is a 2 to 4 player game played in 3 stages on a Sodoku type game board. Player 1 plays with the Yellow pieces. Player 2 playes with Blue pieces. Player 3 playes with the Green Pieces and Player 4 playes with the Orange pieces. The games rules had Player 3 Orange and Player 4 Green. I didn't like that for my game and swapped them. There are 9 Red Marker pieces.
In the first phase, players take turns placing one Red Marker piece in each of the 9 Cells of the game board. Each Cell is a 3x3 grid sharing the same board background color. The colors alternate to seperate the Cells from one another. The Red Markers can be placed anywhere in the Cell using < Up, Down, Right, Left Arrow Keys> except the outer sqares of the Cell. For example Rows 2 to 8 and Columns 2 to 8. The computer will prevent placing the Red Markers outside those locations. The Red Markers limit the movement of the Players pieces. They act as road blocks.
In the scond phase of the game, each player, in turn, places one piece at a time outside the game board location. There are 36 locations around the outside the game board. Players takes turn placing their pieces. All 36 locations will be filled regardless of the number of players. The <Right Arrow Key> advances the cursor around the 36 positions in a Clockwise motion. The <Left Arrow Key> advances the cursor around the 36 positions in a Clounter Clockwise motion.
In the third phase, each player slides one of their pieces from the outside edge of the board inward til that piece travel is ended on the approach of one of the Red Markers or another player's piece. Players continue taking turns sliding their pieces inward till no more pieces can be moved. Some pieces may be blocked from moving and will remain outside of the game board.
After all the pieces, that will moves, are slide into the game board, scores are calculated and the winner is declaired. Scoring is as followed: The Cells are numbered 1 to 9 starting with Cell at the Upper Left corner is number 1 and moving across the top then downward to the Right Lower Cell is 9. Each Cell is calculated seperately and the player with the most number of pieces in that Cell is the Winner of that Cell. The player who Wins the most number of Cells, Wins the game. I have included a copy of the rules as well as a photo of the actual game and a screenshot of the game.
Hope you enjoy playing.
