A kickstarter campaign for Qua may be coming in a few months. Donations now will count towards Qua Kickstarter Reward Levels if I do a kickstarter campaign.

The 3x3x3 Qua game has a lot of forced moves and frequently ends in a Kingmaker situation. I recommend playing a match of 6 games, one for each possible game turn order for three players, to determine who wins. Another possibility is to play either the Qua Misère or Dice Qua game variants for 3x3x3 Qua games.

The 4x4x4 Qua Game challenges players' 3-D visualization skills and requires significant abstract strategy ability to anticipate the other players' moves. Players need to notice when another player makes a threat that becomes unbeatable two or more moves away by occupying empty cells that cannot be blocked. 

In playtesting, 5x5x5 Qua games are consistently voted as being the most fun. It is still easy to overlook threats that cross multiple levels. Games rarely last more than 10 minutes. Dice Qua, as a 2-player variant, works well with the 5x5x5 Qua game board. 

Qua games can be played cooperatively, where the game objective is to help each other make connections, so all three players can be winners.

Qua also has two player variants using a die or adding rules for playing the third player's pieces.
