Type Ethnography

Date 1732-01-01 - 1732-12-31
Rules 9x9 board. The central square is the castle, which only the king can enter. There are two sides: one with the king and 8 pieces, another with 19 undifferentiated pieces. The king begins on the castle space, and his associated pieces are arranged with two pieces on each orthogonal side of the king. The opposing side is arranged on the sides of the board, one piece on each of the three central squares on each of the four sides, and one further piece on the next row in on the central square of the row. Pieces move orthogonally any number of squares. Pieces cannot jump. If a piece is caught between two opposing pieces, it is removed from play. The king, when in the castle, can only be captured when surrounded on four sides. Otherwise, it is captured like any other piece. If the king moves to the edge of the board, the player controlling the king wins. If the opposing side captures the king, they win.

Si Rex occuparet locum b et nullus in e, i et m positus esset, possit exire, nisi mox muscovita aliquod ex locis nominatis occupat, et Regi exitum praecludit. 4.
