Plainim

Plainim is played on a checkered board by removing or adding chips. There are just a few rules.

  1. On a single move, one may only add/remove chips in a single row.
  2. At most one chip is allowed per square.
  3. One may only add chips to the right of a chip being removed on the same move.
  4. The one to remove the last chip wins.

To perform a move click on squares (in a single row) where you want chips placed or removed (see that you confirm to Rules 1-3). Then press the button "Make Move".
