Volcano is a puzzle game inspired by the spewing eruptions of volcanoes. Trigger pieces, called caps, are freely moved around the mountaintops until an eruption occurs. Up to 3 pieces will be moved onto other stacks, and pieces that land on others of the same size are captured.

Also known as Fiesta Caldera, Looney Labs (in the Pyramid Arcade instruction guide) decided to reclaim the name of the original Volcano, technically making this Volcano 3.0.

Goal

Capture 3 monochrome Trios, or 5 mixed-color Trios.
