Game Rules

The rules and principles are similar to conventional chess. The black Raven plays against the red Raven, and Witch respectively.The red player begins. The turn of the players is alternating. Each time one move is made by a player. If the own figure is moved to a field, which is occupied by a figure of the opposing player, then this figure is struck and removed from the field.
