Spurs and Sprockets is a perfect information, abstract strategy game for two players. Players have eight matching tiles that they take turns placing orthogonally into a 4 X 4 grid, in an attempt to link three or four in a row. There is no board in Spurs and Sprockets so the grid grows organically, based on the placement of tiles.
Spurs and Sprockets comes with sixteen tiles and rules for four different ways of playing, ranging from a simple Tic-Tac-Toe-like game where players gain 8 points for four in a row and 3 points for each set of three in a row, to a game where every placement of a tile may result in an attack and removal of another tile.
