Nine By Eight

(AKA 9 x 8)




Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing. The book contains the following description:

This game, based on one written by Chris Callender, is somewhat like Draughts, except that the board measures nine squares by eight, rather than eight by eight. Captures are made like pawn captures in Chess. That is, you move diagonally and land on top of an opponent's piece in order to capture it.
