Battle of LITS is an abstract strategy game for 2 players, inspired by the Japanese logic puzzle LITS. Certain cells on the game board are marked with X’s and O’s. Starting with X, players take turns placing L-, I-, T-, and S-shaped tetrominoes from a shared supply onto the board. Each player tries to cover their opponent’s symbols while protecting their own symbols. When no more pieces can be played, whoever has more of their symbol showing on the board wins. In the event of a tie score, the player who made the last move wins.
This wooden set is a complete game, and comes with 8 double-sided boards (approximately 4.5″ square), 20 player pieces (5 each of 4 shapes), a 20-piece set of frame tiles, and a printout of the game rules. The frame includes extra short pieces and corners that allow it to hold different-shaped boards, like a ‘T’ or ‘S’ configuration instead of the standard square.
