This game is played on a traditional chess board. There are 4 hound pieces and 1 fox piece. At the start of the game the hounds are placed on the dark squares on one edge of the board, and the fox is placed on the far corner opposite. A hound can only move diagonally one step forwards, and the fox can move diagonally one step forwards or backwards. The goal of the hounds is to surround the fox so that it cannot move, while the goal of the fox is to escape. As the hounds cannot move backwards, when the fox passes through the last hound, the hounds will no longer be able to surround the fox, and the fox wins. In this game you play as the hounds, which is easier. Keep a good formation when moving in order to win. But if you want to win with less moves, then you may need a better strategy. The less moves you make and the faster you win, the higher your rank.
