2 player game played on the spaces of an 8x8 board.

Materials

4 chess pawns, 2 black and 2 white.
64 bi-colored reversi pieces.

Definition
piece = a bi-colored reversi piece

Setup

Set the empty board between the players.

Set two like color pawns diagonally adjacent to each other onto two of the four center squares on the board.

Set two pieces at each row and column along the outer edge of the board .

Play

One player plays black the other white.

Black moves first, then play alternates.

On your turn,

Move a friendly pawn in a straight line orthogonally or diagonally ending the movement on an empty square. Then take a piece from the outer edge of the board, flip it to your color and move this piece in a straight line orthogonally ending the move on an empty space. The piece last moved and the pawn last moved should now be in line of sight (orthogonally or diagonally) of each other.

When both players pass in succession the game ends.

Restrictions

- A piece is not in line of sight (orthogonally or diagonally) with a pawn if another pawn or piece is in-between them.

- Neither a pawn nor a piece may jump over another pawn or piece.

Objective

The player with the most pieces in his color on the board at the end of the game is the winner.

The inspiration for this game comes from Walter Zamkauskas Amazons

The scarcity of the pieces along the outside of the board create some interesting tensions, necessitating careful planning to win the game.
