Description

Salta was invented by Konrad Heinrich Büttgenbach in 1899. It is related to Halma.

Rules

Players alternate moving their pieces forward or backward diagonally. A piece may also jump over one adjacent piece of the opponent diagonally forward. This does not capture the opponent's piece. Jumps are compulsory. A player cannot block the other player's pieces such that he or she cannot perform a legal move. The player that can first bring each of their pieces seven rows forward is the winner. The pieces must retain their original order in each row.
