Euclid is played on a 8x8 board with the following setup:.
|TURN - On each turn,
each player moves one of his pieces.
|KING - A King moves
like a chess Queen, sliding any number of cells in any orthogonal or
|A King cannot capture or be captured.
|SOLDIER - A soldier moves like a
chess Rook, sliding any number of cells in any orthogonal direction.
|When it finishes a move, it captures
any enemy soldier on an intersection of the orthogonal lines that
pass through itself and through the friendly King (imagine the
rectangle formed on the board by the soldier and the King; the
captured pieces are on the rectangle's other two corners. It can
therefore capture two at once).
- The player that has two or less pieces lose the game.
moves and wins in 4 turns: b3-b2! Then f5-c2, c4-e4, e2-d2, e4-e1, d2-f2
trapping the b1 soldier and winning on the next move!
