Match your intellect against the Computer Kensington Program. Construct shapes which frustrate and defeat the computer as it tries to overwhelm you on a grid of triangles, squares and hexagons.
Develop your skill in this famous game of strategy and tactics as you progress through the levels from novice to expert.
Enjoy hours of high-quality entertainment in full colour and sound while you or your friends play against the Kensington Program or each other.
Kensington is a game of strategy, skill and logic played on an area consisting of a regular pattern of adjoining triangles, squares, and hexagons. The object of the game is to try and occupy all 6 points of a white hexagon or a hexagon of one's own colour. The first player to do this wins!!
Play starts with the playing area empty, and proceeds through 2 stages - placing stones on the board and moving stones already placed. Completing occupation of a square or a triangle provides one player with an opportunity to disrupt another's efforts. Although the rules are few, simple and easy to learn, the game can be played at many skill levels.
Computer Kensington is a sophisticated and entertaining computer program which allows you to play Kensington on or against your computer. The program can provide you with an opponent whose skill level can be set to suit your own ability.
All you need is the Computer Kensington program and your BBC/B computer system. The program provides an “on-screen" board and all the facilities of the board game - you can even play using the board game while the program supplies a worthy opponent!
The Computer Kensington program can play at 3 different skill levels - suitable for novice, intermediate and experienced players. Computer Kensington is already fully programmed for you - the only computer operation required is the LOADing of the program from cassette or floppy disk.
The playing area is a pattern of adjoining triangles, squares and hexagons. There are three types of hexagons: Red, Blue and White. The object of the game is to capture a hexagon of your own colour or White.
The Red player has fifteen red stones. The Blue player has fifteen Blue stones. Phase one begins with both players' stones off the board. Players place their own coloured stones onto the corner points of any triangle, square or hexagon in alternate turns of play until all are in position. In Phase Two each player moves one of his own stones along a line to a neighbouring point at each turn of play
Rules that relate to both Phase One and Phase Two.
