Focus is an abstract game of the first magnitude which is at its best when played by two players. It is played on an octagonal board with dome-like interlocking pieces. At the start of the game, single pieces move one space per turn; then stacks are formed as single pieces land on other pieces. A stack moves as many spaces as the number of pieces in it. When a stack gets taller than five pieces, the excess bottom pieces are captured. The captured pieces are removed from the board and placed in the capturing player's reserve pile. Captured pieces can be played anywhere on the board on a player's turn. The last player able to make a legal move is the winner.
