A game for two players. The aim is to either:
  • Capture 3 of the opponent's plugs, or
  • Place five of your pieces in a row horizontally, diagonally or vertically


  • 4 Poly Plug sets per pair


  1. Remove all the plugs from the red boards and store them in the bags.
  2. Arrange the red boards in a square.
  3. One player uses blue plugs, the other uses yellow.
  4. Take turns to place plugs one at a time.
  5. A plug is captured (and removed from the board) if the opponent can place plugs on both sides of it.
