Jentha: Read the "Connect One" ruleset.
Legend says that this game was created to settle a dispute between two warriors of rivaling faith. To decide who went first, they would battle until one of the parties was mortally wounded. The winner then decapitated the loser, slotting their head into the board of victory.
It's since been reworked into a fun game for kids, fresh out of school and in budding new relationships! You use personalized checkers. Instead of horrible violence, you and your friends can engage in regular, playful violence to try to insert your piece into the board first.
