GIPF is a strategic game for two players based on a classic concept:
in turns, players introduce one piece into play until achieving
four-in-a-row. Players then remove their row and capture any of
their opponent's pieces which extend that row. This principle of
capturing pieces creates each time again completely changes situations
on the board. The purpose is to form successive rows of at least
4 pieces, until the opponent has no piece left to bring into play
or (in the standard and tournament version) when he has no more
GIPF-pieces on the board.
GIPF is a pure and challenging game that combines
classic systems with completely new elements. Full of surprises
and offering unlimited possibilities, it will appeal to occasional
players as well as to fanatic gamers.

"Das Spiel könnte für all jene, die
abstrakte Taktikspiele mögen, ein Klassiker
