Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.

Joao Pedro Neto, January 2000. Capture the enemy flag and bring it back to your king's square. No royal pieces. Dropping the flag so that another unit can pick it up counts as a move. I thought it best if the flag's base be at the king's home square. I'm presently working on strategy for the machine. Sorry.
