This two-player strategy game uses an 11x4 board from a game played circa 1150 BC (which is unfamiliar to me, shame). The two central spaces are special, and each player owns his home row, leaving two central rows over which the struggle plays out. Each player attempts to prevent the other from having any remaining moves, by occupying spaces and taking his ten pieces away. Stacking is involved --I think you get to move a stack if it is topped by one of your pieces, and if you bring it into your home row you capture the opposing pieces? Check out the beautiful board at Pharao-Brettspiele's home page.
