Roll-Ing to Four

Copyright (c) 2003 Ingo Althofer, Thomas Rolle

This game is played on the following 10x4 square board:

TURNS - At each turn, each player must move one of his stones
A stone moves (orthogonal and diagonal) forward to an empty cell.
GOAL - A player wins by making a (orthogonal or diagonal) 4 in-a-row.
An example

Red's turn. He may win in 3 turns, by moving the marked stone into [1]. The remaining moves (not concerning Blue moves) would be d6-d7 and c5-d6. 

Some words from the authors: The first idea for "Roll-Ing" rose when we had fun with H.D. Ruderman's nice little game "Nu TicTacToe" which is also realized in the basic Zillions collection. On strategy: Don't make the mistake to roll away your central pieces. Instead, try to clump all your balls in one big cluster. Then a winning combination will follow almost automatically.

There is a ZRF to play Roll-Ing with Zillions.
