Description

In Buffalo Chess, a.k.a. Bison, one player represents a villager and their dogs, who are trying to keep the village from being overrun by buffalos, controlled by the other player.

Rules

Buffalos move one step forward to a free space. Dogs move like a chess queen but cannot capture. The villager moves like a chess king, and can capture buffalos. Dogs and the villager cannot enter the top or bottom rows of the board. Buffalos start, and win by reaching the top row. They lose if they cannot move anymore.
