How do you play this game? Its BGG description refers to Laska-style stacking of pieces, and the pieces do appear to be male/female Velcro, allowing them to be affixed not only to the spaces, but to each other's backs. On the other hand, there is no suggestion of "officers" pieces existing for this game, and certainly the Velcro pieces can't be flipped over to show a star or something. Additionally, with no "ends" of the playfield, one couldn't promote privates to officers through Laska's technique anyway. Finally, every photograph depicts every space full, which suggests that this game deviates a bit from the Checkers family a bit, in that one doesn't move/jump into empty spaces.

Play is fairly straightforward.

The start: One piece is chosen at random (eyes closed, spin the ball, remove one), and then place it where you choose. The next player then chooses which color they will play.

Now, there is an empty space. Jumps are forced if your opponent tells you you have a jump.

*JUMPS*: You move an entire stack over a stack with an opposing color on top, remove the top piece from that stack and put it underneath you, and then land on the empty space; if you can continue jumping (you are NOT allowed to go back and forth, but loops -- which must require at least three piles to jump -- are allowed), then you must continue. You are not required to take the longest possible jump.

You start with one-high pieces. You feed your opponent, and then rescue stacks that are two or three high. No piece is removed from the board.
