- Can I lift up the game-piece off the board in order to complete a move?
No. The interaction between the game-pieces, blocking certain rotations, is a critical aspect of the game.
- Can the playing piece hang partially off the board?
Yes. A move is valid as long as the Forgó game-piece is secured to the game board with two pins in any two holes.
- How do I know when the game is over?
At the beginning of your turn, if you are unable to make a valid move with either of your Forgó game-pieces, you have lost the game. This can be pointed out first by your opponent. If playing with more than two players, the game is ultimately over when there is only one player remaining.
- At first glance, this game appears to be quite simple, is it really challenging?
We think it is! Although the game-play is simple, several factors work together to ensure compelling play:
- The rotational & spatial nature of the game present a novel challenge for most players
- Countless possible moves! On the two player version alone, there are four playing pieces, 32 rotation points, 6 possible angles of rotation, and sixty one board positions
- The nature of the game-play has everything to do with who is playing, with a variety of offensive and defensive strategies to explore.
- The multiplayer variation adds a whole new dimension of alliances which can be made and broken without notice and without mercy!
