ZÈRTZ is the 3nd game in the GIPF series of two-player abstract games.
In ZÈRTZ, players compete to acquire sets of multi-colored balls. This is mostly accomplished by jumping one ball over one or more others on a hex board. A player’s turn consists of either jumping or placing any color ball on the board and removing an empty space from the edge of the board. In this manner, the play space continually shrinks. This gives the endgame an almost claustrophobic feel.
