Protocol is the term given to the strategy used by hackers to ensure only the required amount of hacks to hack a node, and make it more difficult for the Agents to determine the hackers.

The Protocol Edit

There are 3 rules to decide who hacks a given node.

To determine who hacks, use the first rule that applies.

  1. The hacker who proposed the node hacks that node.
  2. The hacker who hacked before hacks the node.
  3. The first hacker anti-clockwise of the player who proposed the node hacks that node.


  • If it is the final node of the game, all hackers within the node should hack.
  • NEVER hack on n1 if it's a double.
