On a player's turn he or she must perform one of the following actions:
1) Move a tower (2-stack) by distributing its two stones into the two nearest cells in any one direction. Each destination cell must be empty or contain one or two friendly stones.
2) Catapults (3-stack) may throw a stone, in a forward, diagonally forward, or lateral direction, two or three cells/spaces.
3) Sacrifice a single tower stone to remove an adjacent enemy wall (1-stack). Sacrifice is not forced.
4) Sacrifice one or two tower stones to remove one or two stones from an enemy catapult (3-stack). NOTE: A player may pass after sacrificing just one stone against a catapult.
Goal: A player wins by reaching any cell of his or her opponent's home row and the stone survives until the player next turn, or by stalemating his or her opponent.
