Simple annihilation game.   Unique mechanism for assuring annihilation.

Equipment: Checkers set. 

Played at: Board Game Arena, Ai Ai, Ludii, Mindsports.

Intense game of annihilation.   Magnificent architecture and dramatic play.   You can get behind and come back, a few times, in one play.   Oust is an exhilarating game to win.   And a sh*tty game to lose.

The Oust game tree is ginormous.   Moves are more restricted than in Go, but large groups are removed, and the vacated spaces repopulated - again and again.   Oust has been copied, but never equaled.  No serious AI exists for Oust.   Nor will it exist, for many years to come.

See also square Oust.  Same rules but played with a Go set.

Equipment: Hex hex game board, Go stones.

Played at: Ai Ai, ig Game Center, Mind Sports.
