Fano330-R-Morris is a game for 2 players invented by Masahiro Nakajima, the Curator of The Museum of Abstract Strategy Games, in 2015. It is a ruthless game: On your turn, you can never win, but just lose!

“Fano” stands for the Fano Plane, a geometric plane with the minimum number of points and lines possible (specifically, it is the projective plane of order 2), which in this case is 7 points and 7 lines. “330” comes from the total value of the Japanese coins used as the playing pieces when the game was invented (2× ¥100 + 2× ¥50 + 2× ¥10 + 2× ¥5 = ¥330).

The game is categorized in the family of “Morris” games, represented by Nine-Men’s Morris, but be careful; the “R” stands for “reverse”: The winning condition of normal Morris games is the losing condition of this game.

Components: Board, 2 white circle pieces, 2 black circle pieces, 2 white triangle pieces, 2 black triangle pieces, a cotton case. The pieces are made of 8mm thick laser-cut acrylic ('ice' and black).
