Ambush is an ancient board game somewhat reminiscent of
chess. At one time it was very popular but it is little known
today. In the literature on board games it is called Rithmomachia (you can
see why we called it Ambush).
There are 3 basic pieces : rounds, which move 1 space at a time,
triangles that move 3 spaces, and squares which move 4 spaces.
There is also a pyramid which is composed of each the other piece types and
can move like any of them. Each Piece is assigned a numerical value
and movement is in any direction.
Captures are accomplished by various
positional and numerical combinations.
