Banda is a tile-laying game for one or two players. Played as a solitaire, the object of the game is to get the green band to cover all thirty-six squares of the board without allowing the band to break. To play it as a two-player game, all tiles are spread face up next to the board, then any two tiles are played to the empty board. The two players then alternate turns adding tiles onto the board. The first player to complete a full loop is the winner. As in the solitaire game, multiple loops are not allowed in the two-player game. At the end of play there must be only one loop.
