Ninja SquaresDesigned by: Bryan Koch
Ninja Squares is a tile placement game where players try to get their own pieces to have certain conditions met, but only get to place the tiles of their opponents. Conditions change every time a tile is collected for points, so sometimes there will be cascades of points.
Each player is trying to collect five tile types in their own color, worth one to five points. Each of those types needs to be bordered by a number of tiles corresponding to the point value, except for the elusive fist, which earns you five points only after it is no longer touching any other tiles. There are also mystery tiles that become more and more valuable as your collection of them grows. But watch out, because there is also a negative tile type that gets worse and worse!
