Type Rules text
Location France
Date 1668-01-01 - 1668-12-31
Rules 8x8 Draughts board. One player plays with two foxes, the other with twelve or more hens, played on the white squares. The hens begin on the rows closest to the player; the foxes may begin on opposite ends of the row farthest from the hens. Hens move one space forward diagonally, the foxes move one space diagonally forward or backward. Foxes must alternate turns, i.e., when one fox moves, the other fox must move on the next turn, when possible. The foxes may capture a hen by hopping over it to an empty space diagonally on the other side of it. The hens win by blocking the foxes from being able to move; the foxes win by capturing all the hens.
Content "Quelques-uns jouent avec 2 renards placés au commencement du jeu, aux angles des dames couronnées, à condition que les renards joueront tour à tour, ou l'un après l'autre, les poules sont aussi augmantées à proportion comme de 13, 14, 15, 16, etc selon la forse des joueurs." Mallet 1668: 447.
