To make the game pieces:

Choose 2 colors, and with the connectors, create circles with your glow sticks. Each color is a different player. Or if you have different shapes and sizes of glow sticks, create 2 groups of pieces – one group per person, for their game pieces.

Optional: if you have a lot of glow sticks, make a giant board and you can use tape to create the X shape for one of the players.
