Tintas is a capturing game which plays quickly - if you don't stop to think too much.  The board is a hex grid with 49 cells, which are initially filled at random with 7 chips in each of 7 different colors.  The goal of the game is to collect all 7 of one color, or at least 1 of each and a majority of 4 colors.  The main mechanic is moving a pawn in straight lines to collect multiple chips in one color.
