PÜNCT is a connection game: the goal is to link two opposite sites. On your
turn, you either bring a new piece into play, or you move a piece that is
already on the board. The more pieces you bring into play, the more
possibilities you have to make a connection. But each time you put a new piece
on the board, you reveal a bit of what your plan is. The trick is to place your
pieces in such a way that your opponent will expect you to do something
different from what you really have in mind. As such, PÜNCT is not only about
making a connection, but also about misleading your opponent! Enjoy it!
PÜNCT is the final game of Project Gipf, a series that consists of 6 games and a
number of additional pieces, called "potentials". Each game in the project is
playable separately, but also in combination with GIPF. It all comes together
with a system that makes winning or losing a GIPF-related game a strategic
factor of the game GIPF itself.
The purpose is to offer you a wide variety of
possibilities, so that you will be able to decide for yourself which version of
GIPF you would like to play at any given moment.
