This game is played on the following
board:

TURN  On each turn, each player
(Red and Blue) must:

First: Move  in an orthogonal straight
line  one of his soldiers a number of cells equal to the size of
the black stack it moves towards to into an empty cell.
Jumping over other stones is possible.

If no move is available the
player just does the second part. 


Second: Pick one of the black
stack and redistribute the stones over the neighbor edge cells, at
a maximum distance defined by the size of the picked stack.

The maximum size of a stack is
6. 



GOAL  The first player
that makes an orthogonal or diagonal 4 inarow wins. There may be
empty cells between them.


Note that the corner stacks does not affect
soldier movement, since they cannot move diagonally.

An example
The red soldier can move to one of the
dotted cells. He cannot move left because there are not enough cells to
move.


Redistributing
After moving the stone, Red picks the
left stack and redistribute the black stones over a range of 4 cells.

There
is an advanced game variant, where soldiers can move on L shape, i.e., make two
orthogonal movements on each turn. This adds dynamism to this game which is a
nice mixture of Mancala and Moku concepts.
