Amazons: http://home.earthlink.net/~fomalhaut/amazons.html

The game of Amazons is a strategic board game, invented by Walter Zamkauskas. In this game, each player has 4 queens (called amazons), which also can block squares by firing arrows. The last player that makes a move wins. Michael Keller (editor of World Game Review) has a webpage on this game, and sells a computer program that plays this game for 12 dollars (10 dollars for subscribers to World Game Review.)
