Each peg placed on the board of this two-player strategy game influences the spaces and pegs around it. By means of careful placement, an empty space can be claimed, or an occupied space can be emptied. As more areas of the board come under your control, you approach the end game with confidence. But spaces can also be rendered unusable in certain circumstances, and new tactics must be brought to bear. Auras is an abstract game which requires visualization of many possible patterns, and deciding which is best – defense or offense, plan ahead or take control?
