48 x 84You may have noticed there is a column up there for
(blocked spaces). on each board there shouldonly be as many spaces as there are pyramids to be played. Use some markers (coins,ZendoStones, etc)to
extra spaces in any pattern you see fit. Personally I tend to be a bit symmetrical about thisstarting with the corners but it is up to the players.
For the purposes of placement and scoring use the following definitions-NearAdjacent orthogonally or diagonally.Next toAdjacent Orthogonally.GroupA collection of pyramids
other pyramids of the same color.Note that a pyramid
another pyramid is also
it but the reverse is not necessarily true.
Choose who goes first in the manner you wish (fisticuffs is generally frowned upon but is valid). Theplayers then in turn place a pyramid on any unoccupied space with the following restrictions-1. A 3 pip pyramid may
another 3 pip pyramid of the same color.2. A 1 pip pyramid
another 1 pip pyramid or a 3 pip pyramid of a differentcolor.
Once all pyramids have been played score the board. Points are accumulated in the following manner.
Add the points for each group (defined above).
Pyramids score the number of pips on the pyramid except-
Three pip pyramids score 1 less point for every 1 pip pyramid
them after the first.
Each group gets 1 point subtracted from its total.
