A comprehensive study of the connection game genre, Connection Games provides a survey of known connection games while exploring common themes and strategies. This book aims to impose some structure on this increasingly large family of games, and to define exactly what constitutes a connection game. Key games are examined in detail and complete rules for over 200 connection games and variants are provided. A connection game is a board game in which players vie to develop or complete a specific type of connection with their pieces. This might involve forming a path between two or more goals, completing a closed loop, or gathering all pieces together into a single connected group.

"The recent explosion of new connection games. . . is far and away the most exciting development in board game theory. Browne’s book is a magnificent survey of this vast field, covering more than 200 such games triggered by the Piet Hein/John Nash invention of Hex in 1942."
---Martin GardnerAbout the Author:
Cameron Browne is a software engineer living in Brisbane, Australia. He has been an avid board game player for many years, and developed a special interest in connection games after being introduced to Hex. His earlier book Hex Strategy: Making the Right Connections provided the impetus for this broader study of the connection game family.
