Each peg influences the spaces and pegs around it. With careful placement, an empty space can be claimed, or an occupied space can be emptied. As you gain control of more space, you approach the end game with confidence. But spaces can also be rendered unusable in certain circumstances, and new tactics must be applied. Auras is an abstract strategy game requiring visualization of many possible patterns, and deciding which is best, defense or offense, plan ahead or take control? Made in the USA for 2 players age 8+.
