Mind Sports Olympiad: Entropy World Championship

Classes & Courses

Entropy is a two-player abstract strategic game designed by Eric Solomon in 1977. The game is sold commercially under the names Hyle (for a simplified version played on a 5×5 board) and Hyle7. The game is played on a square 7×7 grid of cells. One player (“Chaos”) draws coloured chips at random from a bag and places each one on the board in an empty space. The other player (“Order”) may slide any chip horizontally or vertically through any number of empty spaces, to rest in a previously empty space. The “Order” player is allowed to pass. When the grid is full, Order scores for any palindromic patterns of chip colours (e.g. “red–green–blue–green–red”) that have been formed horizontally or vertically.

Tournament Rules

Touch move applies to both players. A piece is considered placed by Chaos once it is released.

When a piece is drawn from the bag it is revealed to both players at the same time.

Should Order run out of time the Chaos continues drawing and placing pieces but no moves are made.

Should Chaos run out of time then Order draws and places new pieces, and can make a move after each placement.

Should both players run out of time then the remaining pieces are placed randomly with no moves taking place.
