What is this game about?
From your three starting positions click on a jewel of your color then flip (1 square) or fly (over a number of squares) the jewels to move. When you touch the opponent's jewels change as many as you can to your color and win.
How do I control the game?
You use the mouse or touchpad on your laptop to click. There are no keyboard controls for this game.
How do I play?
You begin with three starting jewels in your color. To move you can choose to flip (move one square) or fly (move more than one square).
How can I move around my opponent and change their jewels' color to mine?
When you highlight a jewel with your mouse, the green highlights represent flip moves, the yellow the “fly” moves. Flipping leaves a jewel in the space you vacated; flying a jewel leaves an empty space your opponent might fill!
I am not sure where to move my jewel to?
Choose your moves carefully and try to touch as many of your opponents jewels as possible in your move. This will change them to your color. Watch out as your opponent may fly over your jewels and change their color.
1) Trick the opponent: The computer can often be tempted to “fly” a piece and leave a gap. Try to fill it to your advantage!
2) Think ahead: Don't focus only on short term territorial wins, plan forwards.
3) Up to the edge: It's advantageous to have jewels at the edge as they can't be flown over, but you need to take some risks or you will be outnumbered.
