Grackles is a lightly themed abstract strategy game in which players line up as many of their birds in a row on telephone wires. On each turn, players take 1 action:
• place a tile with 4 colored spots and telephone wires,
• connect 2 matching spots with their birds,
• extend an existing line of their birds,
• or rotate an unoccupied tile.
The player with the most birds on wires at the end of the game wins.
