Touché was made by Gabriel in 1977. It was a game played on a sturdy plastic grid. Each player has 6 pawns. Each clear plastic pawn (cylindrical or cuboid) has a magnetic chip inside. Each chip is white on one side and red on the other. Hidden beneath the board is a magnetic force. The force can flip the disc inside a pawn to the opponent's color, allow it to remain the same, or flip a color from the opponent's to your color. The goal: be the 1st player to line up 4 consecutive pawns of your color in a row (either horizontal, vertical, diagonal).
