Although this page does a good job of enumerating different interpretations of how to play Jetan, it is not very helpful for anyone who just wishes to understand how Burroughs intended the game to be played. This page makes the task of divining the authentic rules seem impossible. But based on my own reading of the The Chessmen of Mars, it doesn't seem to be that difficult to figure out, and I find myself in agreement with Jean-Louis Cazaux on the other Jetan page over what the authentic rules are.
