Hodge Podge is played on a 9x9 square board.Each player starts with 18 stones(17 Soldiers and 1 King)9 on each of the two back ranks.
On each turn each player must move one stone:
1.Soldiers and Kings slide an orthogonal line of empty cells.
2.A stone may jump over an orthogonal adjacent stone(of either color)landing on the immediate empty cell.This is not a capture.
3.A stone may capture stones by custodian capture,i.e.sandwiching the opponent´s stones between itself and a friend over an orthogonal line.A capture along an edge may wrap around the corner.
Wins the player that satisfies one of the following conditions:
1.Capture the opponent King
2.Move your King into the last row
3.Make a 5 in-a-row including your King and not using stones over the first two rows.
4.Reduce the opponent´s army to less than 4 soldiers.
