In days of old, cephalopods (octopi) would venture forth and compete in friendly wrestling matches. Two, sometimes even four would engage in a three dimensional exhibition of cephalopod cunning, each attempting to pin the other into immobility. This game is a lot like that, minus the smell.
Heads and tentacles move to and fro, blocking, entangling, overreaching, in an effort to pin the other octopus. All pieces move like a queen in chess. Be careful not to get boxed into a corner, or to lose sight of your tentacles, for surely you will be pinned. A game with simple rules, quick gameplay and pleasantly surprising depth of strategy.
