Rules of vertex

Available to download here...

This is an original strategy game, which should run ok in any version of windows from Windows 7 and later. The aim of the game is to beat your opponent (your computer) in a race to claim the top vertex, through a progression of legal moves.

Each player is randomly allocated 1-4 chips each time it's their turn. Every one of your 1-4 chips will be red and your opponents will be yellow. Along the way to the top vertex, there are two randomly positioned power vertexes which will give you (for one power) a 1 in 8 chance that each chip allocated to you will be a 'wild' chip. For two powers, you'll have a 1 in 5 chance of your chips being a 'wild' chip.

An icon drawn on the vertex denotes a power vertex...
