Divide and Conquer - The Board and Online Game

Game Play : Signal

There will be times when you need to the assistance of other players to achieve your own objectives or simply to stop another player from winning. Since all of the planning is done in secret, you can't overtly ask for help. The Signal variant helps inspire your opponents to temporally coordinate an attack on another players position.

The signal variant is where you stack your opponents player tiles in front of you with the order of which you think the players have advantage. Everyone else does the same thing and at any moment you can look around to see who everyone thinks have the current advantage. It can be used to bluff or bring attention to someone getting close to checkmate.

Signaling is optional, but we like to play it with new players.


Feel free to discuss this variant on the Board Game Geek Forums.
