OpenKropki is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

OpenKropki is an open-source and multiplatform implementation of the 'kropki' game. It runs on most POSIX systems (Linux, BSD...) and on Windows.

Gameplay[edit]

'Kropki' is a pen & paper game that was quite popular in Poland (kropki), Russia (точки), Czechoslovakia (židi), Ukraine (крапки) and a few other eastern Europe countries. The game's name translates simply as 'dots'. The concept is similar to Go, although it had to be adapted for on-paper gameplay:

  • each player takes turns into putting a new dot on the field.
  • when a player manages to put his dots all around a group of enemy dots, he creates a 'base', capturing the enemy's dots that lie inside.
  • a base cannot be trespassed by the enemy, but it can be captured.
  • the game ends when there is no place left on the field: the player that captured the highest number of enemy dots wins.
