How to play .
The object of this two player game is to capture your opponent's king or all of their pawns lay out the board and divide the tiles into two piles , one pile with the circle background and the other with the diamond , give each player a set of tiles and a set of colored pieces .
Both players place their tiles , however , they like on the four rows closest to them , making sure the orientation of the tile's color matches the board to retain the checkerboard pattern .
Each player places their king on the fourth space from the right on their back row , then places ponds on the remaining spaces in the two rows closest to them .
The red player goes first , then turns alternate on your turn .
You must move one piece , then your opponent goes ponds , move according to the tile they are on at the start of their turn , moving along unblocked paths as indicated to the destination of your choice .
Ponds may not move through pieces or onto the same piece as a friendly piece .
You capture an opponent's piece by landing on it .
Captured pieces are removed from the board and may no longer be used .
The Squire tile allows you to move one space forwards backwards , left or right .
The rook tile allows you to move as many spaces as you want in a single direction , forwards , backwards , left or right .
The bishop tile allows you to move as many spaces as you want in a single diagonal direction .
The queen tile allows you to move as many spaces as you want in any one direction .
The night tile allows you to move two spaces in one direction .
Then one space at a right angle to that space .
The night tile is special in that it allows you to jump over other pieces .
The swap tile allows you to swap that tile with any of the adjacent tiles next to it including diagonally after you swap your pond then performs a move based on the new tile that was swapped .
You may do this even if the other tile has a piece on it .
The teleport tile allows you to move to any space that is adjacent to any other teleport tile on the board .
This includes teleport tiles that your opponent placed .
You may not move to the teleport tile itself .
You are allowed to capture an opponent's piece through the teleport move .
The king does not use tile movement but instead moves to any adjacent space .
This includes diagonally .
This is not a chess variant .
So rules like check castling on Passan and promotion are not allowed the first player to capture their opponent's king or to capture all of their opponents pawns wins .
