Sixteen Soldiers




Sri Lanka


Game from Sri Lanka played on an alquerque board of 5x5 intersecting lines with triangular appendages on each of the four sides. Each player has 16 pieces. Pieces are placed on the intersections of the lines and move along the lines to an adjacent unoccupied intersection. Pieces can be captured by jumping. Multiple captures in one turn are possible. Capturing is required if it is possible. The player who captures all the opponent's pieces or blocks them from being able to move is the winner.
