BibleandboardGamesWelcome to this Pyrga tutorial! Pyrga is an abstract game, where players take turns playing different shaped pieces onto the 4x4 board.1archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61ba4d401478200
BibleandboardGamesAs pieces are placed on top of each other, they make towers of different shapes. When a tower has three pieces, one of each shape, it is considered "Complete". The player with more of his color of pieces in the tower gains "Control" of this tower, or one point. The first player to achieve control of three towers wins!2archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61ba4d401478200
BibleandboardGamesIt is our turn. Since the opponent has played a square, we can now place a piece on any of the spaces adjacent to his piece (outlined in red). Let's select a triangle below, and place it on top of our square.1space_2_261ba4d5e39eda10space_1_1 1 space_2_2 1 space_3_1 1
BibleandboardGamesWe now can decide which direction the triangle will point. Our opponent will be able to place his next piece in the direction our triangle points. How about right?1direction_right61ba4d7698a6210
BibleandboardGamesYou're a pro! I should mention, on the *very first two moves* made by the *first player*, they may not place two squares adjacent to each other. 1archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61ba4d780f96400
BibleandboardGamesHe placed a cylinder, which means our next piece has to be on the same space. Let's put a triangle pointing up here.1space_3_261ba4d853c4ba10
BibleandboardGamesPoint it upward.1space_3_261ba4d98b6dd610
BibleandboardGamesI fast-forwarded a little through the game. This square has a complete tower on it. Since it has more dark pieces on it, our opponent gets one point. But don't worry, we will get some soon!1space_2_161ba4dd301f3600space_2_1 2
BibleandboardGamesHere we can do a neat move. We want to make a complete tower on this space, with at least two of our pieces in it. What piece could we put here, to make this tower complete soon?1space_1_161ba4df90b02010space_1_1 1
BibleandboardGamesTerrific! We have a point!
We are almost done, just one last thing you should know.1space_1_161ba4e1fa807a00
BibleandboardGamesSince the opponent has pointed the triangle in a direction we couldn't play in, we can now play in any unoccupied space on the board!1space_1_261ba4e42e465700
BibleandboardGamesIt is important to note if there are no open spaces on the board, the game ends, and whoever has the most points wins. If both players run out of pieces before either player achieves three points, again whoever has the most points wins. If there is a tie at the game end, whoever has the most towers of two pieces wins. If still tied, whoever has the most towers of one piece wins.2archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61ba4e42e465700
