Russian variant of paper-and-pencil game also involves drawing lines to adjacent points on a grid, and is distinguished by a larger play area and players extending the line to three points each turn. The line can change direction at each point but must not touch any existing line (there are no bounce moves). If a player becomes trapped and unable to draw this line, then their turn is forfeited and the opponent gets a “penalty kick”. This special move is a straight line in any of the eight compass directions, extending 5+ points, and is the only occasion that other lines may be crossed. If the penalty lands on an already-occupied point or there are less than three unoccupied points available to move, an additional penalty kick is earned.
Game extended with possibility to specify field size, penalty length, goal area and various other options which will diversify your game play.
