Tiger Hunt

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Tiger Hunt here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

This game was invented by David Paulowich. The tiger moves as a knight or a queen. Pawns do not promote. A stalemated side loses.

Thanks to J"org Knappen and Esengo for help with debugging. The game is of course very similar to Maharajah and Sepoys.
