    Spirit (of Shibumi) is a 3-player ball-stacking game that can be played with a Shibumi set. It uses a '4x4' holes board and balls in 3 colours.

    Each player has an allocated colour, and they take turns during the game (white -> black -> red).

    On your turn, place one of your balls on an empty hole or platform so that no other FREE ball (no balls on top) of the SAME colour is on the same row or column of the same level^. If you can't, then you must pass.

    If all players pass in a single round the game ends. The player with most balls on the board wins.

    Ties are possible, but rare.

    Notes from the designer

    ^- Note that there are 4 levels.

    This is an attempt to capture the spirit of Shibumi, by creating a very simple 3-player-only game.

    Rules for this game are included in the soft cover Shibumi Rule Book


    2 players. Each player randomly gets 15 balls from a pool of 10 white balls, 10 black balls and 10 red balls.

    Play as usual. When no legal moves are available, the player with less balls remaining wins.
