Joao Pedro Neto, January 2000. Capture the enemy flag and bring it back to your king's square. No royal pieces. Dropping the flag so that another unit can pick it up counts as a move. I thought it best if the flag's base be at the king's home square. I'm presently working on strategy for the machine. Sorry.
