Slides of Action is played on the following 4x4 square board.
Each player chooses a color. The third remaining color is neutral.
Red's turn in a Red vs. Yellow game. If Red moves a4 into a3, he wins in the next turn, because Yellow can only make a left shift of the 4th row (the forward shift of the 1st column is not valid due to the KO rule). If Yellow shifts the 3 stones, he loses immediately (red stones get connected). If he shifts 1 or 2 stones, then Red moves the red stone at d4 to the left and wins.
The author designed Slides of Action as a piecepack game combining Lines of Action with a 15-Puzzle. This game can also be played with 3 players, in this case there are no neutral stones.
