Six Making

Six Making is a neat combination of familiar moves and mechanics.  The goal of the game is to make a stack of 6 pieces, with your color on top.  The clever twist is that pieces move in the familiar manner of Chess pieces, depending on the current height of the stack.

  1. Pawn - 1 space horizontal or vertical
  2. Rook - any number of spaces horizontal or vertical
  3. Knight  "L" shape; 1 step orthogonal, 1 step diagonal
  4. Bishop any number of spaces diagonally
  5. Queen any number of spaces in any direction
  6. King - wins, no moves.

You can move any number of pieces from any stack,  but always to a square that is already occupied.

Robots: Devastatingly good.
