A game for 1 to 6 players by Néstor Romeral Andrés, and a tribute to Martin Gardner (1914-2010).
PENTACTIC is a game in the line of FITS or Ubongo, but with more player interaction, where players try to place all their pentominoes on their boards while dropping stones on the opponents’ boards to prevent them from doing the same.
A pentomino is a piece composed of five congruent squares, connected along their edges. There are 12 different pentominoes.
There are 4 types of gameplay:
1. Solo play (1 player): You’ll need 1 PENTACTIC set.
2. Basic play (2 players): You’ll need 1 PENTACTIC set.
3. Duel (2 players): You’ll need 2 PENTACTIC sets.
4. Multiplayer (3-6 players): You’ll need as many PENTACTIC sets as players.
