Description: GRO: Battle for the Petri Dish is an abstract strategy game for 2 players. Each player controls the growth and expansion of a strain of bacterium within the confines of a petri dish. The goal is to become the dominant strain.
Each player starts with a single germ. Germs may grow and divide to produce more germs, which may grow and divide to produce more germs, which may grow and divide... you get the idea. Germs may also move, and they may attempt to surround opposing germs. When a germ is surrounded, it dies.
The petri dish contains 4 goal areas. The first player to gain exclusive control of 3 of the 4 areas wins.
Growth, division, movement, and victory are governed by a few simple rules. And like chess and go, just a few simple rules create an endless number of challenging games.
