Carnac is an area control game with a unique mechanic.   The playing pieces, called menhir are all identical, marked with red and black on opposite faces.   The basic mechanism in the game is to place a menhir upright, which the other player has to tip over and then place the next menhir, or decline to tip and lose his turn.   Three or more adjacent squares with the same color form a Dolmon and the player with the most Dolmons wins.  

You can read the details in the official rules here, but that's really all there is..  Carnac can be played on various sizes of board, but always with the same number of menhir.  Smaller boards can be quite claustrophobic.
