I'm really enjoying this one.

It's kind of like a checkers type game where the goal is to take the other pieces.

Pieces increase their strength by changing the color of tiles. An example: Move a red piece from the very bottom of the board to the very top and it increases in value from a 1 to an 8 (The base value plus the seven tiles touching it). If another piece cuts through the red line you just created, then the value of the red piece will drop.

The diagram at the top shows that the green piece is selected and which targets are valid.

To take a piece it must be a valid target and your piece must have a value equal to or greater than the piece you take.

More like Chess in the use of strategy. I was thinking checkers cause you just have to take out all the pieces you can.

The "basic" 3 colors move like rooks. The 3 "advanced" colors (made after a basic takes another basic and the colors mix) move like queens.

Depending on which side you are on you also get 2 white or black pieces. They add their value any friendly piece that is touching it's trail.

There's a lot of strategy involved since in one move you can have a 22 yellow become a 1 yellow.
