 +=====Summary=====
 +Bit of a boardgame design challenge here.  Can I make a game using thrown away bits of another game?
 +Number of Players: 2-5\\
 +Type of game: Abstract strategy tile laying
 +=====Rules=====
 +====Pieces====
 +  * 20 square counters from the centres of the Colosseum arena pieces which consist of-
 +    * two blank counters with a light and dark side in 5 colours
 +    * two arena stand counters with a light and dark side in 5 colours
 +====Glossary====
 +**Board Piece** __(//**BP**//)__ - A blank counter of your colour.\\
 +**Fortification** __(//**F**//)__- An arena stand counter of your colour.\\
 +**Mobile mode** - A counter that is light side up.\\
 +**Attack mode** - A counter that is darker side up.\\
 +**Touching** - An edge to edge laying of counters.\\
 +**Flipping** - Changing the mode of a counter by turning it over.
 +====Setup====
 +Each player takes four counters of the same colour - two **Board Pieces** and two **Fortifications**.\\
 +Note: All pieces initially placed are done so in **Mobile mode**.
 +  - Placing **Board Pieces**
 +    - One player places their first __(//**BP**//)__ 
 +    - Each other player places one __(//**BP**//)__ such that it touches one other player's __(//**BP**//)__ - but does not touch any other player's __(//**BP**//)__.
 +    - Each player then places their second __(//**BP**//)__ such that it touches their previous __(//**BP**//)__ but no other player's __(//**BP**//)__.
 +  - Placing **Fortifications**
 +    - Each player places their first __(//**F**//)__ such that it touches one of their __(//**BP**//)__s but no other player's __(//**BP**//)__.
 +    - Each player places their second __(//**F**//)__ such that it touches one of their __(//**BP**//)__s or the previous __(//**F**//)__ but no other player's __(//**BP**//)__ or __(//**F**//)__.
 +=====Playing=====
 +Each turn consists of a player making two actions.  The two actions made can be any combination of-
 +  * Moving a **Mobile** Board piece or Fortification
 +  * Moving an **Attack** Board piece or Fortification
 +  * Flipping a Board piece or Fortification
 +====Moving====
 +===Mobile Mode===
 +  * If moving the counter will not disconnect any other counters (i.e. it will still be possible to trace a path from any counter to any other counter through touching edges)
 +  * If the counter you wish to touch has at least two exposed edges.
 +  * If the counter you wish to touch is not fully enclosed by other counters.
 +Move the counter and any other counters on top of it to touch the other counter.
 +  * A counter in Mobile Mode cannot move on top of another counter, but can carry other counters.
 +===Attack Mode===
 +  * If the counter has no other counters on top of it.
 +  * If moving the counter will not disconnect any other counters (i.e. it will still be possible to trace a path from any counter to any other counter through touching edges)
 +Move it to touch a counter next to it or move it on top of a counter it is already touching.
 +  * It can move only 1 space.
 +  * It can move on top of another counter.
 +  * If it is a Fortification piece and you are moving it on top of another Fortification piece belonging to a different player - you capture that piece.
 +  * Moving a Fortification piece onto a stack of other counters will only effect the top most counter, and only then if it is a Fortification piece.
 +====Flipping ====
 +  * If the counter has no other counters on top of it.
 +  * If the counter had no other counters beneath it.
 +Turn the counter to its other side.  
 +  * It stays in its current position.
 +=====Ending the Game=====
 +The game ends when only one player has any Fortification pieces left.
