This is Squint, a two-player board game supporting Internet play. The original board game is from Kadon Enterprises.


Players take turns placing pentominos on the board. The initial piece must cover a corner square. Subsequent plays must touch at least one other pentomino at a corner; they cannot overlap other pentominos or touch them at edges. The last player to place a piece wins.
