The creators of DIAM, Alain Couchot and Bernard Klein gathered all the necessary ingredients to make this game a real jewel. The name itself sounds like a gem, and the octogonal shape is reminiscent of a diamond.
This game deserves its success because it's beautifully crafted (it's made of wood), the rules are very simple, and the game itself is incredibly rich. The goal is to place 2 pieces of the same color on 2 DIAMetrically opposed squares and at the same height.
DIAM triggers amazing sensations. It's very dynamic, because at any time you might think you're about to win. But this simplicity is deceptive : at each move, your opponent(s) may discover your plan and strike back. The slightest mistake can be lethal. A revenge match is imperative !
