She paused and looked at the girls.

Rules of the game Explore & Connect.
Unlimited players in two teams, black and white.
A custom drawn map. Each game is played on a new map. Drawing the map is essential before the new game is started. The map will be drawn on squared paper. Each square represents a spot where a black or a white stone is placed.
The object of the game is to explore the land and the seas with the stones. One stone is to be placed in turn on the board. White players place white stones, black players place black stones. Opponents’ stones are captured when surrounded and removed from the map.
Stones can only be placed next to existing stones. Players start on the same island, then expand at will.
The player with more stones on the map at the end of the game wins, wrote Kristen.
We do not have white or black stones, said Julia.
Theresa will have enough for us to play tomorrow, said Kristen.
