Game Terhüchü (Small)

Date 1921-01-01 - 1921-12-31
Rules 5x5 intersecting lines, with diagonals drawn in each quadrant. Eight pieces per player, five arranged on the row closest to the player and the remaining three in the central three spots of the second row. Players alternate turns moving a piece to an empty adjacent spot along the lines. A piece may capture an opponent's piece by hopping over it along the lines of the board to an empty spot immediately on the opposite side of the opponent's piece. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.
