Rules

Mondrago is a two player abstract perfect-information strategy board game.

Initial board set up.
  • Players alternate turns on each move.
  • Each turn consists in moving an own pawn to an adjacent unoccupied field.
  • Objective is to form any sized exact square by own pawns. A square may be directed straight, diagonal, or oblique.
  • Player wins immediately on reaching the objective.
Available moves for light pawns.

The diagram shows a sample situation of an ongoing game. The arrows indicate all legal moves available for the player controlling the light pawns.

The objective of a Mondrago game in more detail will explain the differences on straight, diagonal, or oblique squares that have to be formed by own pawns.

Light straight small square wins.

If edges of the winning square run exactly parallel towards the board edges the winning square is called a straight Mondrago. There are four different sizes of straight Mondrago winning squares. Here the light pawns form a winning three by three sized Mondrago.

Dark diagonal huge square wins.

Just two sizes of a Mondrago exist on diagonal justification. There are nine possible smaller diagonal Mondrago squares, too, and a huge one as shown here built by the dark pawns this time.

Dark oblique small square wins.

Oblique Mondrago squares exist in two sizes, too. Here dark built a small variant to win the game.

Mind there are exactly 50 different constellations to win a 'Mondrago'. A player wins even if the opponent's pawns may be placed on edges or inner fields of any Mondrago.

The Mondrago board game rules are available from the application menu. Furthermore the rules can be found inside the Rules section of the Mondrago community website. The rules text has been translated to various languages already.
