A Faust egy nagyszerű társasjáték, 2 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő hosszú, akár 30 - 240 perc is lehet. A társast, 8 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a terület foglalás, a minták, a minta felismerés, a terület befolyásolás/irányítás és a lose a turn mechanizmusokra.
Faust is a game of annihilation for two players. Not only are draws impossible in Faust, every game of Faust played to its conclusion ends with a board completely filled with a single color of disc.
Materials: A square board of any size (nothing bigger than 15x15 is recommended due to the amount of recycling and potential number of moves along with the amount of mechanical flipping involved) and an unlimited supply of discs with each player's color on either side. Go stones can also be used if you're willing to replace them instead of flip discs. (note: If you have an Othello set, 8x8 is a fine size to get started with)
Objective: wipe your opponent completely off the board!
Gameplay: Starting with black, on his turn a player may place a disc with his color facing up on any empty cell, with the exception that if he places orthogonally adjacent to an enemy disc, the placed disc must be orthogonally adjacent to at least one other disc of either color.
A player may also, in lieu of placing a disc with his color, flip a rectangle of discs consisting purely of enemy discs, if the following qualifications are met
The rectangle is entirely bounded by single-colored walls on all 4 of its sides
the player owns the majority of the perimeter created by these walls the rectangle is not part of a bigger rectangle meeting these criteria.
Edge rule: If one or more of the walls bounding a rectangle are board edges these will take on the color of the parallel walls opposite to them. If a rectangle is bounded by two opposite board edges then these are considered to be neutral walls.
Forced passing: You automatically pass your turn if no legal move is available for you on your turn. Otherwise passing is not permitted
Pie: After the first move, the second player may choose to switch colors instead of playing a disc of his color for his first move.
