Can a Guard be captured by telekinesis if it has not 
been placed on the board?

<blockquote><i> Can a Guard be captured by telekinesis if it has not been placed on the board? </i></blockquote> <p> No, only pieces on the board can be captured by telekinesis. If there is no Guard on the board to capture by telekinesis in a case where you could, you capture the King instead for the win.

Good game. But can someone explane rules of Stone Warriors?

Wikipedia has a page explaining the game of Stone Warriors, also called Awithlaknakwe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awithlaknakwe

The rules about not moving backwards, diagonal interception capture, and placing the Guard seem to be derived from Stone Warriors.
