We are in the realm of SIAM which once upon a time was heaven on earth, a vast country where elephants and rhinoceroses had been living in peace for centuries.
Once, the earth started to shake and SIAM was reduced to three regions surrounded by gigantic mountains. Since then, elephants and rhinoceroses don't have enough space to live.
These two incredibly strong species shall now struggle mercilessly to rule over two territories.
To win, you have to be the first who pushes a rock out of the board. An animal can push a rock, but beware, if you want to push an animal which faces you, you have to be superior in numbers, e.g. two animals oriented to the right direction can push two rocks and three animals oriented to the right direction can push three rocks.
The simplicity of SIAM's rules and the profoundness of its gameplay will please the players of all strengths and ages.
