This game is played on an empty 5x10 square board:

  • DROP - One player drops his minelayer on the left column, the other drops on the right column.
  • MOVE - Each minelayer moves like the chess Knight (jumps two cells in a orthogonal direction, then one more cell in a perpendicular direction landing on an empty cell). The origin cell is occupied by a mine.
  • GOAL - A player who stalemates his opponent, and either have a valid move or was the second player, wins.

An example

Red's move. The number sequence shows that Red has a winning endgame. Green cannot jump anymore when he arrives at cell [4]
