- Pentalpha is more of a puzzle than a game. The rules are a bit arcane. The
idea is to move all the gold balls on to intersections
or the points of the
star (these points are marked by red dots).
- It’s that easy?
- No, it’s not that easy. You have to move the gold ball over three points on the
star (the red points). The first point must be unoccupied. The second point can be
occupied or not. The last point (where the moving piece lands) must be unoccupied.
All these points have to be next to each other and they have to be along a straight
line. You may need to try a couple of times before you get it. If you need to

For example, let’s say your first move is like this:
For your second move, you can do this:
Or even any variation of this:
But not this:
because, in this case, the first point is already occupied.
