LIONS & GLADIATORS
Abstract Board & Dice Strategy game for 2 players.
Roman Coliseum Theme.
One player is the Gladiators.
The other player is the Lions.
There are 2 ways to win:
1. Capture both of your enemies pawns
2. Capture the most prisoner Tokens.
The game ends when both of one players pawns are captured, or
When all Prisoner Tokens have been captured.
Use an 8 X 8 Chessboard.
Two six sided dice are needed.
Each player gets 2 Pawns.
48 Prisoner Tokens are needed.
Setup the board like so:
L = Lion Pawn
G = Gladiator Pawn
P = Prisoner Token
E = Empty Space
Both players roll 1D6. High roll goes first.
Players take turns.
On your turn roll 1D6.
Move one of your pawns that many spaces.
Moves may be orthogonal or diagonal.
If you move into or through a space containing a Prisoner Token, keep it.
You may not move through another pawn (or onto your own).
If you land exactly on an opponent’s pawn, you capture it.
If you are blocked and cannot move, skip your turn.
Add Column Spaces that cannot be moved through.
If you roll a six, you may move your Pawn like a knight in chess.
