Lyngk is game 7 of the Gipf games.  It's recognisably part of the same family, but brings its own twist on some familiar mechanics.   There are 5 colors, but initially none of the colors are owned by either player.  In the course of the game, each player will claim 2 colors; which colors to claim and when to claim them is a key decision.   The object of Lyngk is to make "rainbow" stacks of 5 chips with all different colors, topped by a chip whose color you have claimed.     The official rules have the details.

Robots:  The strategy and tactics of Lyngk are not obvious.  In that environment, the robots are pretty fierce.
