Bagha Chal - 'Moving Tigers' (Instructions below)
This is an ancient game from Tibet, and is often played on a beaten brass board, with figures cast in brass. The tigers try to eat the goats by jumping over an adjacent goat to an empty point (as in the game of draughts), whilst the canny goats will try to prevent this by herding together and blocking the tigers in.
In this computer version, you get to play the goats, with the computer playing the tigers.
The game starts with the 4 tigers in the corners, and your 20 goats off the board.
Game phase 1:
You can't move a goat yet - not until you have placed all of your goats on the board.
Game phase 2:
However, the tigers will try to eat the goats by jumping over them to an empty point - it's a bit like draughts. If the tigers manage to eat 5 goats, your game is over.
