The aim of the game is to form equilateral triangles using pegs of the same color. The players take turns and place one peg each turn. In doing so it doesn’t matter which color peg is placed on the board. If the player is unable to form a triangle, he then tries to prevent the other from forming an equilateral triangle by using the joker (the red peg). The winner is the player who places the last peg of a triangle. If no player is able to make a triangle, then the player who used the joker is the loser. A match consists of a set of games.
