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.

Jean-Louis Cazaux based this three-player game on the hexagonal chess variants of Dave McCooey and Stephen P Kennedy. A move by one player may cause a discovered attack on the previous player's king by the next player's runner. I forbade capturing the previous player's king in this situation.
