Be the last player playing!
Electris consists of rounds, each round lasts 60 seconds. As long as your batteries do not touch the upper playing field, you can proceed to the next round! Try to destroy as many battery rows as possible, to give your opponents many penalty rows!
All players play the first round simultaneously. Afterwards the penalty rows are distributed. All players, whose batteries do not touch the upper playing field can play the next round. The last player remaining will win the game!
There are two kinds of penalty rows. Normal penalty rows and metal rows .
Normal rows can be destroyed like any other row in the the next round. You can create penalty rows for your opponents by destroying rows. Depending on the player amount, your opponents will get one penalty row for every:
- 5 destroyed rows with 2 players,
- 6 destroyed rows with 3 players,
- 7 destroyed rows with 4 players,
- 8 destroyed rows with 5 players,
- 9 destroyed rows with 6 players.
To create a metal row in your opponent's fields, you have to destroy 4 battery rows at once. This is difficult, but worth it; because metal rows cannot be destroyed and so they are an obstacle throughout the whole game!
