    Splade is an evolution of Spline for 3 players that can be played with a Series: Shibumi set. It uses a 4x4 holes board and spheres in 3 colors (white, black and red). It was inspired by the great Gute Nachbarn, by Alex Randolph.

    How to play:

    The board (n×n) starts empty.

    Starting with white (then black and red), players take turns placing a marble of their colour on an empty space or platform (2×2 arrangement of marbles).

    Whenever a full line with exactly 2 colors is formed, the game ends. The winner is the player with a color in that line whose position in the player order is immediately before the other player with a color in that line.

    This is, for a 4×4 set, a 4-in-a-row on the first layer, or a 3-in-a-row on the 2nd layer, or a 2-in-a-row on the 3rd layer.


    White makes a line of 3 on the second layer containing 2 white balls and one black ball and wins.


    Consider the colour of the previous player instead of the next.
