Nevo is a two-player strategy game played on a 7x12 grid. Each player has twelve checkers on his side of the board. On his turn, a player may move one checker one square in any direction, including backwards. Each checker must always be adjacent to one of its teammates, or it is removed from the board. The further a checker is advanced into enemy territory, the more it scores: the first rank is worth 2 points, the second rank 5 points, and the third rank 8 points. The winner is the first player to score 16 points.
