Long Description:
Straight strategy game like Chess but the games are much quicker. It takes minutes to learn but a lifetime to master. It is basically a chess board turned sideways with a line diagonally across the middle which is the trench. It is based on the trench warfare of WWI. Pieces in the trench cannot be taken from enemy territory and can charge out taking multiple pieces. There are 5 ranks of pieces which are shaped with either 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 levels. A rank 1 can move 1 space. A rank 2 can move 2 spaces but with additional options on directions, etc. You win by points or if your opponent runs out of time. You should have some knowledge of the game when signing up for this event. If you are unfamiliar with the game, consider signing up for a Tutorial first, and then Open Play or Competition after you have learned the game.
