Mirador is a connection game which can be played straightforwardly on graph paper, by marking out a 27 x 27 square and using colored pens to indicate the placement of 2 x 2 squares (on most graph paper the units would be 1/2 CMs) to represent watchtowers.

Several factors combine to make this a very fast and exhilerating game. These factors are line-of-sight connection (which is a feature in Sid Sackson's unusual game, Network); graded placement; and, finally, equivalent goals---either player can win by connecting North to South *or* West to East.

goulo 2 Interesting weird placement tactics to guarantee your own lines of sight and block your opponent's lines of sight. Cool little game!
