Switchboard is a solitaire game of connecting telephone calls to their intended recipients.
The switchboard is made up of a 3 × 3 grid of cards, each showing different paths (electrical cords). Cubes/tokens representing the terminals of incoming calls and their recipients are randomly placed around the outer edge of the board. By moving the cards and cubes the player attempts to connect two terminals of the same colour (an incoming call and its recipient) with a continuous cord.
There are 3 rounds of increasing difficulty, featuring priority and emergency calls that must be connected first. To win the game all the calls must be connected within a certain number of moves.
