== RULES ==

1. Players take it in turns to make a move, with the startingplayer determined randomly. On each move they can either move apiece one space in a direction indicated on the piece, or drop apiece from their hand.

2. When you move one of your pieces on top of one of youropponents pieces, it is captured and goes into your hand. You canthen place it back on the board as your own piece later.

3. If a Chick reaches the far end of the board, it is promotedinto a powerful Hen! A Hen reverts to a Chick when it iscaptured.

== WINNING ==

There are two ways to win the game:

1. By catching, or 'checkmating', your opponent's Lion. This iswhere you manage to trap the Lion so that it is guaranteed you cancapture it on your next turn, no matter what move your opponentmakes.

2. By moving your Lion to the far side of the board, as long asdoing so does not allow your Lion to be captured on the followingturn.
