1. The person who sets their board up with heads goes first.

See 1 pieces (text).

(graphic) See 2 piece (text)
4. Any piece can capture - (graphic)

on a square occupied by the opponent.
5. After the first piece has been taken by you or your opponent, you
are able to make a 3 piece. (graphic).
See 3 pieces (text). You can make a 3 piece (graphic) (text)
by moving one of your 1 pieces on top of one of your 2 pieces. Doing this
is just like using a turn. In order to make a 3 piece, a 1 and a 2 piece
must be dircetly next to each other, because a 1 piece moves on top of a
2 piece, and a 1 piece can only move one square at a time. A 3 piece can
move one, two, or three squares, as long as it is in a straight line. Remember
- a diagonal is a straight line.
6. Once a 3 piece has been made, it can be "unmade"
(graphic) (text) at any time. You
can move the 1 piece off the 2 piece and onto the board, or you can move
the 1 piece onto another 2 piece. When a 3 piece is unmade, it counts as
7. You can only move one piece per move.
8. When you get one of your pieces into your opponent's base, you win.
Once your piece is in your opponent's base, the game is over, even if the
piece is able to be captured by your opponent the next turn.
