Description

Shobu is a beautifully crafted abstract strategy game for two players.

Rules

Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board - or off the board's edge. A passive move can be done only if it can be followed by an aggressive move. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from just one of the four boards to win.
