The Brain Game from Australia Board Game in QB64
« on: April 22, 2018, 07:35:06 am »
Hello All,.

The Brain from Australia is a 2 player board game originally made on my Tandy 2000. I could not find a copy of the rules, I peeked at my source code from the Tandy 2000 printout to figure out the rules. Hopefully I got it right.

The Game is played on a 13x13 game board with alternating orange and green spots on the board for players to place their pieces on. There are also groups of 2x2 grey squares grouped under the color spots around the board. One player plays with 26 white pieces and the other plays with 26 black pieces.

The game came be won by placing 4 of your pieces in a row and skipping one space in between each of your pieces or by occupying all 4 grey squares that are grouped of your color.

If after each player has placed all 26 of their pieces on the board and there is no winner yet, places can move the their pieces already on the board.

Hope you enjoy playing.

Donald

Hi Donald,

Interesting game. I once win when I had eight cubes in a sloping row, the second time when I had 4 black side by side in the shape of 2 next to each other and below 2 next to each other. I know not this game. Thanks for sharing.
Coding is relax.
