This game is a variant of Stack-Up draughts (checkers in American English) but has been implemented with a different set of rules to the game.

It looks like the game of Reversi in which pieces may be placed in any game position be it that they remain where they are in Reversi and do not move.

In Xplosion! pieces move horizontally and vertically and must be stacked in order to win the game eventually.

There was this documentary about Leonard Nimoy, Startrek's Mr Spock. I Saw his live long and prosper salute and pressed print screen on the keyboard.

I sent the jpeg imagefile to laserspiegel.nl and had it lasered in a mirror. Bought a nice frame for it and presto! A one-off Trekkie special.

Live long and prosper, also my new motto now!

The board consists of a grid with twenty-four intersections or points. Each player has nine pieces, usually colored black and white. Players try to form 'mills' allowing a player to remove an opponent's man from the game. The aim of the game is to reduce the opponent to two pieces, rendering them unable to form any more mills.

Backgammon is one of the oldest known board games.
Its history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archaeological discoveries in Mesopotamia.

It is a two-player game where each player has fifteen pieces (checkers or men) that move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice.

The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen checkers off the board.
Backgammon is a member of the tables family, one of the oldest classes of board games.
