Description

Fanarona is a single player implementation of a strategy game from Madagascar, in this implementation the player competes against the computer

The game is played on a 9x5 grid, the corners of each cell are connected by diagonal lines and the board is set with the players pieces which are placed, not inside the cells but at the corners where two or more lines meet.
As with many traditional board games the rules are simple but the game is quite complex. Players can move any of their pieces one position along a line. If it ends up next to an opponents piece then that piece and any unbroken string of enemy pieces is captured. If it moves away from an opponents piece it and any unbroken string of enemy pieces is captured. The player may continue moving that same piece until there are no more captures to be made, but they cannot return it to its starting position. A piece that just captured may make another capturing move, though (in this version) it may not immediately return to the point. The player who loses all their pieces first concedes the game

The game is mouse controlled, has optional music and sound effects plus an internet play option. There is a save game feature and the game keeps track of the moves played and has the option to print these.
