Octiles is a racing game for 2-4 players.
The board uses an unusual grid with square posts
interspersed among octagons. Runners perch on the
posts, and traverse paths drawn on the octagons.
Each move consists of placing (or replacing) a tile, and
moving a runner over a path that includes that tile.
The runners can't bump or capture each other, so the game is
to block your opponent's advance by a combination of
occupying the posts he would prefer, and creating lines
which let you advance rapidly while your opponents creep
forward one post at a time.

Robots: pretty strong -
bots are good at tracing lines.
