Description

Louis XVI is a tafl style game in which players must try to help King Louis XVI escape from an angry mob.

Rules

The king player receives one king piece and an army of 18. The mob player gets 26 pieces. Play is set on a star shape board. Captures are done by jumping adjacent enemy pieces and are compulsory but not multiple. Only the King can move to one of the star point cells (the blue cells). If no possible capture, a player moves a pawn to an adjacent empty cell.
The mob wins if the king is captured and the king player wins by getting the king piece to any of the points of the star.
