Description Edit | History

Mad Bishops is a two-player game which uses a 10x10 checkerboard, 25 red checkers and 25 blue checkers. The board is initially set up as shown in the figure.

The checkers function like Chess bishops with two restrictions. On your turn you must either kill, or move into position to kill. If a checker is already in position to kill, it can only be used to kill. Killing is not mandatory. I.e. if you can move an unengaged checker to engage the enemy, you can do that instead.

Mad Bishops is a game of annihilation. I.e., you must kill all enemy checkers to win.
