This isn't very Chess-like at all, and the Lions are an extreme kludge for holes in the board.

I am playing this game by email with the inventor. When Tony first showed me the design, I thought 'This will be a fun game to play, but not as deep as a lot of the games in the contest.' I was quite <u>wrong</u> about that--the game has simple mechanics but the strategy and tactics will pleasantly surprise you. Lions and Dragons is very good game and a very worthy entrant in the 84 Squares contest.
