Re:Larry,

   There are two solutions:
    
   1. Capture by stranding, where after every move, any opponent pieces that are stranded are considered captured.

   2. Stranded disapear, after every move, any friendly stranded pieced are removed.


Larry, your idea most align with the second choice. I think both are viable, the first being simpler to understand, but the second give the player a 'second chance' of a sort.
