senketGeoff Canyon presents Senket, a game played on a Go board which looks nearly as complex and nearly as elegant.

– Each round, you can place a stone and then as many “fences” as you like.

– Fences can only connect two stones of the same color that are exactly a knight’s move away from each other.

– At the end of the game, you score the square of (the number of squares inside any area you have fenced + any opponent’s posts within that area).

– You can only claim an area that does not contain any area claimed by your opponent.

– If you connect areas with a line of posts, you can sum the total areas before squaring (this is not clearly stated in the rules, but in the examples).

Though it’s not clearly stated, I assume you can only connect your own fences on your turn.
