the game, players throw small discs containing glyphs onto
the playing field. Small creatures appear above the discs
along with a transparent sphere, indicating the area that
the creature 'controls.'

The victor is determined using various probability calculations,
so certain creatures are never guaranteed to win.
of the game is to win control of stars that appear at various
locations on the playing field. When a star is within a creature'
sphere of influence (and that creature isn't intersecting
an opposing sphere), that creature controls the star. The
first player to control 3 out of 5 stars wins the game!
