Very interesting! But I also have a hard time understanding this all at once.

You should give prominent definitions for "end zone" and "end field". I think the whole page would be easier to grasp quickly if you briefly described some of the rules earlier: the three options for a turn, and how pieces "throw" the stones. Then later you can clarify the differences between stones and peculiarities of piece-stone interactions. And any of the piece descriptions that can be slimmed down would be helpful (e.g., the pieces that don't have special stone-placement rules don't need to reiterate how they place stones).

(If the standard page sections are too restrictive, you can move everything into the Introduction section and add headers yourself.)
