Game Play
Beginning with the start player (chosen at random), players take turns placing a single disc of their color on any free square on the game board.
The board has two sides: QANGO 6 with 6x6 squares, and QANGO 7 with 7x7 squares.
The QANGO board consists of colored squares where 3 of each with the same color are connected (examples shown in the picture).
Game End
The game is won by the player that has placed...
EITHER 3 discs in a single colored area...
OR 4 discs in any square...
OR 5 discs in a single line.
The game ends in a tie if all squares are taken (QANGO 6 and QANGO 7 Plus) or all 40 discs have been placed (QANGO 7) without one player fulfilling a winning condition.
