The object of Push Fight is to push one of your opponent's game pieces off the board.
Players take turns placing their five pieces (three with square tops, two with sphere tops) on their half of the board, with white placing first. White then takes the first turn, and players alternate turns after that. A turn consists of 0-2 moves, then a push of one space; a player can move any of their pieces orthogonally — changing direction if desired — any number of spaces as long as those spaces are empty. A player can push only with one of their square top pieces, and they push both friendly and opposing pieces one space. After pushing, the player places the red anchor piece on the piece that pushed; this piece cannot be pushed on the opponent's next turn.
Players continue taking turns until someone pushes an opponent's piece off either end of the board. (The sides are ridged, and pieces cannot be pushed over them.)
This is one of the best abstract games of the last decade that somehow flew under everyone’s radar. Read our review of Push Fight.
