Each pool should have 4 lines total. 2 vertical lines and 2 horizontal lines. 2 dashed lines and 2 solid lines. Two pools use straight lines, two pools use slightly curved lines. Two pools have no dot, two pools have a large dot in the middle. This gives 16 unique 'pieces' each with 4 characteristics. A piece is either vertical or horizontal, dashed or solid, curved or straight, and dotted or not. + +# Rules + +The rules are the same as Quarto. Player 1 selects a piece for Player 2 to play by drawing a circle around that piece in the piece pool. Player 2 plays the piece by drawing a copy of the same piece into an empty square on the board, then crossing out the piece in the pool. Then Player 2 circles a piece for Player 1 to play and so forth. + +The first player to place a piece which results in 4 pieces in a row that all have the same of one of the 4 attributes. So 4 pieces that are all horizontal, or all have dots, or all don't have dots, or are all dotted, etc.
