Objective: The objective of the game is to use logic gates to direct the flow of signals to the correct output.
- A set of hexagonal tiles, each representing a different type of logic gate (such as AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, XOR, and XNOR)
- A set of input tiles, numbered 1 to 4, representing the input signals
- An output tile, representing the final output signal
- A deck of cards with different signal combinations
- Set up the board by placing the input tiles at the top and the output tile at the bottom.
- Each player selects a set of logic gate tiles.
- Shuffle the deck of cards and draw a card to determine the desired output signal combination.
- Players take turns placing a logic gate tile on the board, connecting it to the input tiles and other logic gate tiles to build a logic circuit.
- The first player to create a circuit that outputs the required signal combination wins the game.
- Players must follow the rules of Boolean algebra when placing their tiles, ensuring that the circuit they build is a valid logic circuit.
- The game ends after all the cards have been used, and the player with the most wins is the winner.
This game combines the challenge of building a functioning logic circuit with the added element of the cards, providing a different output signal combination for each game. It's easy to understand but difficult to master, making it a fun and engaging game for players who enjoy puzzles and logic problems.
