This is a simple game of shared pieces where forming lines of 3, 6, or 9 pieces in length wins you points. When the board is full, the player with the most points wins.

cdiffell -1 Feels like it's easy to get on the losing end of a chain reaction where you can't help but give points to your opponent...I suspect that this happens a lot, and that whoever initiates it has practically no chance to turn things around for the win. The single idea here is not enough to keep the game interesting. Pass.
Murwiz -1 Really didn't care for this. It seemed to run down towards the end into who got the last move, which of course is already known at the start of the game, so we just maneuvered to make the last few plays.
Aaron -2 Yawn...

nycavri -2 Very dull . . .
Zotmeister -2 Painfully simple first-player win: first move in the center cell, then rotationally symmetric to wherever opponent plays, win by 8 points. Duh. Oldest trick in the book. How did this game ever get published?!
