This game is played on the following 4x4 board:

  • TURN - On each turn, each player must select a stone and use it to jump over an (diagonally or orthogonally) adjacent stone landing on the immediate cell (which must be empty).
    • Jumps may be multiple.
    • The cells where the stone started each jump are occupied by another stone.
  • GOAL - Wins the player that makes the last move.
An initial move

The first player picked the stone at a1 and jumped to c1 and then to a3. So, the player dropped the two marked cells.

This game can be played with just pencil and paper. It is presented at 100 Strategic Games for Pen and Paper by Walter Joris.
