Kendell Craig and Patricia Hernandez came up with Goatsuckers seven years ago. Capture the Goat or form three in a row within the Crop Circle. Cabras can only be captured by Chupacabras. The inventors cite Knight-Tac-Toe, Five-Star Chess, and Tic-Tac Chess, in the time when even casual designers had self-respect to find their place in the movement. Nicely creative, but one suspects some cook on only 5x5.
