Idea

Origin

Some years ago I was inspired by a young author who finished his first book at the age of 15. At that time I started writing and have become fond of it. So during that time I invented a board-based game for the story I wrote.

Why this idea?

At the beginning of the second semester my class was told to find a topic for the basic qualification 1 . I had many ideas which did not fit the requirements. Then I remembered the game I myself invented and chose to develop it.

What is it?

The idea is kind of familiar. It is a strategy- and turn-based board-game with 10x10 fields. Two players are opposite and control 20 figures each. If one succeeds to eliminate a certain figure this one wins the game.

What is the difference to chess?

There are 9 different figures and only one resembles a chess-figure. Every other comes up with unique rules to move.

Rules

Games

One player wins a game if the opposing king is defeated.

Rounds

One player starts the game and when this one has moved the figure(s) accordingly, the other ones turn starts.

Turns

The player can choose which-ever figure is allowed to and move it to its destination. There is no additional rule limiting this one.

Figures
