Majorities is a deceptively simple game based on majority rule.
  • control the majority of spaces on a line to win the line
  • control the majority of parallel lines to win a direction
  • control a majority of the three directions to win the game.

Starting with an empty board, white plays one stone on any empty space.  After the first play, black and white alternate placing 2 stones each.  When the board is full (or probably quite a while before) one player will have won.

Robots:  Looks unbeatable, at least until some human devises a strategy.

The back story: 
I found majorities on Boardgamegeek, and immediately short listed it for Boardspace.  Bill Taylor gave me permission; 4 years later, here it is!
