Description

Hund efter Hare is a name applied to several blockade games played in Denmark. This game was played in Thy, Denmmark, on a more complex board than was common elsewhere.

Rules

3x5 intersecting lines, with diagonals in the four quadrants created. On either short end, an arc connects the two corner points, and the center line is extended to the arc. One player plays as four hounds, which begin on the four points to the left side of the board. The other player plays as one hare, which begins on the point where the center line and the second line cross. Players alternate turns moving a piece to an empty adjacent spot along the lines. The hounds may only move forward. The hounds win when they block the hare from being able to move.
