Product Description

Enter the age of chivalry in this classic strategy game of royal conflict. Each player starts with a King, four knights and seven archers. The object: to use the forces at your command to capture your opponent's King. The play of the game is unique: arrows on the board determine your pieces' directions of movement. To move a piece, you must follow one of the arrows that lead from its square. The rules, as established by royal decree, are very easy: an archer or King may move only one square at a time; a knight may move any number of squares; any piece may capture any opposing piece. The more you play, the more you'll discover that the possibilities for strategy are endless. Invent your own techniques of attack and defense. Experiment with different battle formations. Use cunning and logic to surprise your opponent with new and unusual tactics. Whether you're young or old, beginner or champion, you can enjoy the excitement of this elegant, colorful strategy game at your own pace and your own level of skill.

very good game
February 08, 2010

this is a very good game. my dad has always had trouble with chess, but the easy format and simply large arrows help him. i suggest this game for anybody. its easy to learn, fun to play, and indeed an alternate to chess

Excellent variation of Chess
April 22, 2003

It's been years since I played, but I remember the innovative twist to Chess. Basically, the arrows inject into the Chess-like game a topographical feature. This is because of the inherent power of an army or unit 'holding the high ground', the 'high ground' (those squares with more arrows (most being 8, all points and sides of the central square) make any piece more powerful and maneuvarable. I have been asking anyone if they ever heard of this game and only know one person (the one who had the game, now lost).
