How To Play
How to Play:
Each player gets a pawn and ten gates. The pawns start on opposite sides of the board. In turn, players can choose whether they want to move their pawn one space up, down, left, or right (no diagonals); or place a gate somewhere on the board. Pawns have to maneuver around the gates with the goal of getting to the other side of the board. Pawns cannot be trapped by the gates - they have to be left with at least one way to get to the other side.
How to Win:
The first player to get to the opposite side of the board is the winner.Download PDF Rules Of The Game
