an assassin, and all of his small pyramidsare removed.c. Play continues with the new
victim taking his first turn.
WinningSmall victory can be awarded to any assassin who captures the victim. Truly
winningthe game is only possible by the victim who must, during a single run as the
victim,touch all four bases.
VariationsFor a shorter game don’t remove a players small pyramids when they are
captured.This way anytime a player reaches all four bases he wins, no matter how many
times he
has been captured.
6–9 people may play the game but some changes are required because it becomesvery hard
for the victim.
If you have an additional piecepack you may change the following for more players.a.
Create the game board in a 6x6 board instead of 5x5, again with the centersquare
empty.b. Assassins start on one of the two squares directly out of the corners.
