Objective: Outwit and Outmaneuver Opponent
3M Company - 1971
Evade is played on a six by six grid. Each player receives six pawns, two of which are identified as "Evaders" by placing a small magnet under them. The remaining four pawns are called "Guards".
Each player's pawns start on one side of the grid. The object of the game is for one player to get one of their Evaders to the opposite side of the board.
Pawns may move one space in any direction. If a Guard moves onto a space occupied by another pawn both pawns are "frozen" and cannot move for the remainder of the game. Only Guards can freeze the opponent's pawns. If an Evader attempts to freeze a pawn the player forfeits the game.
The winner is the first player to maneuver one of their Evaders across the board. If both players have both of their Evaders frozen then the game is a draw.
Evade is another variation of Fox and Hounds produced by 3M with a naval theme. (The Bookshelf game Breakthru also uses this theme. As a game, it is shorter and simpler than Breakthru and is moderately interesting. The board is designed in such a way that it could be used in a moving vehicle and would probably make a good travel game.
