It is played on a triangular board with varied numbers of colored counters depending on the complexity desired. Players move counters from the center zero spaces to spaces with higher numerical values and ultimately off the board into a goal. Points are scored by controlling a corner of the board by the moves made. Pondering TRI-NIM with stretch you, whoever you are. It is the ultimate game for strategists.
