Other Interesting Points -
Rules - Pivot is essentially a game of take-over with the final objective being to change all opponent's pieces to your colour. The game is for two players and each side starts with ten pieces which are placed, in turn on the board one by one in any position of the player's choice.
Capture - If a triangle is surrounded on its three sides by opponent's pieces it is turned over, changing colour to the opponent's piece. In a situation where a player has a number of pieces in a group together, if all sides of that shape are surrounded by opponent's pieces then all the triangles forming that shape change colour to become the opposition's pieces.
