Gladiators

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

Gladiators, Latin - gladiatores, swordsmen or one who uses a sword, from gladius, Gladiators were professional fighters in ancient Rome who fought against each other, wild animals, and condemned criminals, sometimes to the death, for the entertainment of spectators. Gladiatorial fight never can end with the peace. The same occurs in this game too. Here is not a draw. Death or a Victory. A Nightrider (modern Piece) Vs a Knight (ancient Piece). Of course, a Nightrider is more mobile and powerfull Piece then a Knight. When Pieces moves from a square they leaves behind a block to show it's already claimed that space. The object is to get a stalemate of opponent Piece. Here is 2 games 1. Nightrider Vs Knight and 2.Hunt - where is 2 Nightriders hunting for alone Knight. A Knight is Target. There are no captures. The Lonely Knight can not claimed a square and loses if it is unable to make a move. If a Knight will find small part of a board where is not place for Nightriders then a Knight winner! A Knight will be repeat own moves and at last Nightriders will die without free squares. It is not easy game for Nightriders.
