Like Chess, HexiMerosTM consists of players alternately moving playing pieces with the object of winning.

Unlike Chess, a Sovereign may be captured and removed from (and possibly returned to) the board.
Unlike the strategy games, everything that happens around the play area and away from the play area is part of the game.

The object of the game is to be the last player on the board.
The players do this by placing other opponents Sovereigns "under attack", in such a way that the opponent Sovereign may be captured by himself or any other player. This is repeated until there is only one player with pieces remaining on the board. The player who achieves this goal has won the game. The players whose Sovereigns have been captured have lost the game.
If the playing position is such that neither of the last two players can capture the Sovereign(s) of the other, the game is drawn between these two players. The other players have still lost the game.
