Arimaa. Uses same equipment as Chess, but designed to be difficult for computers.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] George Duke wrote on 2010-08-02 UTC
Arimaa has both the placement phase and different win condition. Pre-placement not fixed and different win conditions are two current topics in CVPage. First the gold player places, then the silver player places. Winning by reaching goal or state of eliminating all opposite rabbits. Trenholme points out, 24.Sept.2006 here ''all comments'' that Arimaa variants are under-utilized, that would work on any board. If we have, say, 200 boards including hexagonal, that's 200 Arimaa variations to adopt for starter. Or also vary rules a bit as to the number of rabbits, 4-5-6-7-8 crosswise with 4-5-6-7-8, supposing different armies between the two sides, that's at least 20 more, i.e., 20 times the 200 boards.
