It was. You can see clearly in a few shots that it's the same.

Seems be be called "Server" and looks like a hacking themed game that plays kinda like Stratego - i.e. you know what you pieces are but your opponent does not (presumably until they come into contact).

Let's geek out on it for a moment:
8x8 grid

Instead of little stand up plastic castles Server seems to use face down cards/tiles.

This could allow for easily customizable/collectible armies, but does not seem to.

Something that looks like a starting zone for both sides in the row closest to the player + the two middle spaces of the next row.

The two middle spaces closest to the player appear different. They have a picture of PC (terminal) with the label STOP and an arrow pointing to the enemy player (and the game logo "Server"). I assume this is how you win. When Okabe loses in the cafe there is one enemy piece catty-corner to his center server squares.

There are 8 spaces, four on each side behind the last row of the players. 4 of them are labeled with a plug like glyph and is labeled "link", the other four are labeled with skull like glyphs and are labeled "virus". In the first game they are unused (captured pieces seem to be being returned to the player). In the second game Christina wins by capturing 4 of the link pieces and placing them on her side of the board in her slots. This suggests that there may be multiple win conditions.

Also there are one virus and one link card of each color placed to the side of the board at the end of the second game. Are these unused? Do viruses jam links but remove them from play (without counting towards a 4 link victory)?

Other known cards:
Fire wall - block
Line boost - racecar
"?" - Flashlight?
"?" - Squarish shape?

Anybody got any more info?

I definitely don't. Because spoilers aren't allowed, not even under spoiler tags so if there's something in there I don't want to see then maybe you should take it out.

Well lets just say I suspected it based on the anime's foreshadowing, then stumbled on this after watching episode 5, which confirmed it.

And I don't think I'll take the spoiler out entirely, I'll just make it sufficiently more vague.

Even hints are against the rules.

Question for those who played the game: Does the game have multiple routes?
If it does, I wonder how they are going to handle that in the anime?

Well I mean, most VN adapted animes just pick one route and go through with it.
I haven't played the game myself so this is just an assumption.

The original game is mostly linear. There are multiple endings, but they are small branches off the linear route. The true endings is at the end of the linear story line.

I don't know what to do , whether to watch series every week or rather wait and watch like 4 episodes in a time, because the show is damn good!
