This is a strategic game my math professor gave our class. I'm not sure of the different strategies, but this may serve as a fun "brain teaser" for you all. Also, if anyone knows that this is a previously-made game, please provide the name of it. View the board: The objective: There are two players: the circle player and the pursuing player. The goal of the pursuing player is to bound (trap) the circle player (more on this below) and the goal of the circle player is to escape being trapped. I'm not sure if there is always a definite winner. The rules: I had a rough 5 minute intro to the game so these rules are what I've gathered. Again, if anyone knows any official rules to the game, please provide them. The two players alternate making moves in order to accomplish their goal. The circle player may move in any direction (horizontally, vertically, diagonally) on the gridded board, one box at a time. The pursuing player must trap the circle by shading in boxes around the circle (one box per turn). However, the circle may "jump" over a single box (kind of like checkers) but not more than one. Therefore, if the circle is completely surrounded by boxes with more than one "layer," he is trapped. This game is similar to chess, where there is the possibility of "check" and "checkmate." I.e., the circle is checked if he is surrounded by a single box on all sides, but may avoid this threat by jumping. Checkmate is assumed when he is trapped and has no way to jump or move outside of the boxes. I hope this is clear!
