Attaxx is a territory-grab-game just like Hexxagon. Above you see a screenshot of the game, when it runs on the Windows operating system with the .NET Framework installed.

The Rules for Ataxx

Object of the Game

The object of the game is to have the majority of your colour discs on the board at the end of the game.

A Minute To Learn

Black places two black discs and White places two white discs as shown in Figure 1. The game always begins with this setup, unless you choose a non-default gameboard by clicking the rightmouse-button!

A move consists of either a "growth" or a "jump". A growth is when you select one of your pieces and place a new piece in an empty adjacent space, including diagonally. A jump is when you select one of your pieces and move it to an empty space that is two position away. This includes diagonals and "knights moves". You can NOT move onto the blocked '#'-places!

   j g g g j
   j g . g j    g = valid "growth" destinations from the center
   j g g g j    j = valid "jump" destinations form the center
   j j j j j

Once placed, any opponents pieces that are adjacent to the new piece (either through growth or jump) are flipped the to the moving player's colour.

If you are unable to move on your turn, you are skipped. There is a chance that your opponent may be forced to make a move that will let you move again.

Download the game

You can download v1.1 of WinAttaxx and play against the PC. Installation instructions: Unzip all files to a folder and run setup.exe.

Requirements

PC must have the .NET Framework 1.1.4322 or higher installed! This basicly is the 1.1 framework which you can get over here

Changes

You can still get WinAttaxx Version 1.0, but version 1.1 has more feautures:
+Added more boardtypes: 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8 with random blocks.
+Cooler glass-sphere graphics
+Undo-move! If you really want to undo a move, now you can! +Extra AI-level-5 (even harder to beat).
