1- Linear Progression is a two player abstract strategy game played on a
regular chess or checkers board.
2- One player gets a set of black tokens. The other player gets a set of
white tokens. Plastic winks work great.
3- Players begin by dropping one of their tokens onto the board. The square
it lands on is their starting location.
4- Players take turns moving. White moves first.
5- Tokens move like queens in chess.
6- Every space your token moves into or through put a token of your color
into that square.
7- If an opponent had tokens in spaces you moved into or through, remove
them and replace them with your tokens.
8- A player moves only one token per turn but it can be any of their tokens.
9- A token cannot move into or through an opponent's last remaining token
on the board.
10- For a move to be legal you must enter at least one empty space on your turn.
11- If you move into a space occupied by one of your own tokens you must
stop moving and your turn ends.
12- The game ends when the last empty space becomes occupied. The winner
is the player with the most spaces of their color on the board.
13- The corner spaces of the board are not used and cannot be entered.
----Equal Number of Moves:
Black always moves last even if white occupied the last empty space.
Use rooks for blockers.
Tokens cannot move into or through blockers.
Blockers move like queens:
They can move onto or through spaces that are empty or occupied by tokens.
Blockers cannot move into:
The last unoccupied space on the board or
Onto a player's last remaining token on the board or
Into the last space your opponent moved into last turn.
Players can move one blocker per turn in addition to one token.
If a blocker is on top of a token that token cannot be moved.
Tokens a blocker moves through or onto are not removed.
Players start the game with one blocker.
This blocker starts in any unoccupied corner space.
Try using boards of different shapes and sizes.
This may include "islands" in the middle that cannot be moved into or thru.
