As the compass is moved across the board, the needle changes to indicate the next move. The player directs the compass to the edge position indicated by the needle. Most positions will point the needle toward the inside of the board, however at a certain point in the game, the needle will point away and out of the game. The player is thus ‘out’ and has won. This piece parallels the message of The Inutile Instrument Series by paralleling the futility of our daily exertions and decisions.
