 By Roberto  Lavieri. Alpha Centauri. A very complex game, somewhat exotic, with some elements from Rococo. (9x9, Cells: 81) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Italian mathematician Roberto Lavieri moved to South America and became Venezuelan.   Alpha Centauri lacks the clarity the later Altair brought to the Horizontal rank movement of both games.

Very interesting game. The movement and capture dynamics are unique. The win condition is goal oriented, also creating a different dynamic. The non-capturable pieces are an interesting element too, somewhat inverting the 'checkmate' rule. The Rotor is neat, juggling pieces instead of capturing them!
