At first, this board game will look like an elaborate Tic Tac Toe. On a small game board, you place either the base, the shaft, or the cap of a corinthian column. The idea is to get three pieces of the same type in a row - at the same level.
A couple of other rules complicate play, however, so that the result is a game that approaches Chess and Go in strategic complexity. Almost nothing depends on chance, and almost everything on your ability to think ahead. Think of it as a game designed to stretch your ability on the spatial relationships portion of an IQ test.
Not everybody enjoys deep-thinking games like this. But, like chess, it's possible for sharp-thinking younger players to compete with tired older ones and win. Plus, the game is really pretty.
