Majorities is a game with exceptionally simple rules, reminiscent of Stonehenge. Many variants (including a very natural 3-dimensional version) are possible.

It is based on the fact that in politics, or committees with sub-committees, a minority of people in critical places may nonetheless carry a voting motion. This has long been felt as a weird situation by the game inventor (Bill Taylor), who has devised this family of games to illustrate this phenomenon.


The board is initially empty. The first player places a stone on any cell, then players take turns placing two pieces per turn on empty cells.

A majority of stones in a line wins that line.
A majority of parallel lines in a direction wins that direction.
A majority of directions wins the game.
