The Coerceo board consists of 19 board tiles, each tile having six sides (hexagonal shape). A tile has six alternating black and white triangles marked on them. The 19 board tiles placed against each other make up the Coerceo modular game board. Each player starts with 18 identical game pieces which represent them on the board. Each game piece is shaped like a three sided pyramide also known as a tetrahedron shape. All game pieces have the same playing capabilities, which are moving and enclosing pieces from the opponent. The Coerceo board gets smaller during the game when tiles are taken away from the board. This means that the opponent is never far away.
