At first sight it could appear, what game is too simple and easy like
tic-tac-toe. But when you'll play it, you will understand, what it's
wrong: game is very interesting! By the way, maybe, change starting
position and use another piece as king? I don't know what with rook, but,
i think, it worth to try bishop, but they must start on squares of
different colors: if they will start from same position, as in this game,
they will be unable to move at all, and if they both will be in corners,
both will be able to reach only 2 squares. Maybe, bishop, wich starts on
corner squares, have more chances, but another can be given by stronger
pieces or stronger starting position.

By the way, it's not smallest possible playable game: there is game on 6
squares, with archbishop (N+B) as king. And even this game is probably not
the smallest playable... But, maybe this game with 6 squares is smallest
possible playable game, where all pieces are on board in beggining.
