The players each start with 5 rings on the board. Every time a
ring is moved, it leaves a marker behind. Markers are white on
one side and black on the other. When markers are jumped over
by a ring they must be flipped, so their color is constantly changing.
The players must try to form a row of 5 markers with their own
color face up. If a player succeeds in doing so, he removes one
of his rings as an indication that he has formed such a row. The
first player to remove 3 of his rings wins the game. In other
words, each row you make brings you closer to victory-but also
makes you weaker, because you have one less ring to play with.
