Typhoon (Revised)

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

Here is the revision of Typhoon described under “Typhoon (Revised)”. This file includes:

  • The new Dervish, Harpy, Missionary, Sorcerer, Cicada, and Typhoon pieces;
  • A clearer mechanism for choosing the initial array;
  • Minor bug fixes in the movements of some pieces (for example, the Undertaker didn't always promote when it was supposed to); and
  • (new as of 25 January 2009!) the new Salamander.

The file at the link below contains a bug: the Longleaper can sometimes capture a piece in one direction by moving in another. It also contains the old Salamander, without the restriction that the Salamander must land next to a friendly piece when it moves more than one step.

The updated file is here.
