The aim of the Blob Wars is to gain control of the board by attacking your opponent's blobs and converting them to your own. The rules are very simple - Spawn a blob into an adjacent space or Jump into an open space one square away. First choose to play either the 1 player or 2 player game. Then select whether you are going to play a single game, best of three or best of five game.
Choose the board, and start playing. Select a blob on your team by clicking on it using your computer mouse. Once selected, your blob is highlighted and the possible moves you can take are shown with the darkened green tiles. Click on the highlighted space to complete your move. A single square move multiplies your blob – a new blob appears where you select and the first blob stays where it was. A two square move removes your original blob.
After you make a move, your opponent's blobs, that are next to your blob, become captured and change into your blobs. The winner has the most blobs when the board is filled. If you can't make a move, then you have to click on 'Pass'. Empty spaces will automatically be filled with your opponent's blobs, and then the score will be calculated. Good Luck!
