Pink/purple DVONN board game box.DVONN is a board game played by creating stacks of game pieces that move throughout game board.  The game includes 23 white pieces, 23 black pieces, and 3 red DVONN pieces.  Players first place the DVONN pieces on the board at their choosing and then alternate placing their own game pieces.  Players try to stack their game pieces as the number of pieces in the stack indicates the number of places a player can move on the board (ex. a stack with three pieces can move three spaces in any direction).  Players must move their stacks of pieces as a whole, not the individual pieces, and if they are no longer in contact with the DVONN pieces, the entire stack is removed from the board.  The objective is to have the most pieces as indicated by the highest stacks at the end of the game.
