The Hare and the Hounds
On each turn, a single hound moves to a directly connected empty square, followed by
the hare's similar move. The hounds may only move vertically or forward (to the
right), not backward. The hare may move in any direction.
There are no captures. The hounds win by trapping the hare so that he is unable
to move. The hare can win two ways. He can escape, which he does by moving
past (to the left of) all three hounds. Also, if the hounds move 10 times in a
row without advancing (i.e. they only move up and down) then the hounds are stalling
and the hare wins.
To move a hound, first use the mouse to select the hound you'd like to move. Then
select the square to move into. Selecting the same hound twice will cancel the
selection. If you're playing the hare, you need only select the desired square.
