You start with a grid with a few red and black squares already revealed.
The number of squares already in place will depend on your difficulty level. The harder the game, the fewer your starting squares.
Some squares will appear in pairs already.
Cover the entire grid in red and black squares
No three consecutive squares, horizontally or vertically, can be the same color.
Each row and column must have an equal number of red and black squares
Look for pairs. Logically a pair of the same color leads to a square of a different color on either end. This will quickly fill up large parts of the puzzle for you.
If an empty space is between 2 tiles of the same color, the space between them is automatically filled by a tile of a different color.
Count the number of tiles of each color in every row or column. If the number of tiles of one color are half the number of spaces in a row or column, the remaining tiles must be of the opposite color.
The game is suited for people of all ages who like logic puzzle games.
The game has no adult themed content.
