There’s certainly no shortage of action in this game! If you are able to defeat at least one of your opponent’s tokens, you must do so, no matter what the direction. Once one of your tokens reaches your opponent’s rearmost row, you cannot move it again unless you are able to defeat a token with it.
If you manage to defeat all of your opponent’s tokens first, or it is impossible for him or her to make a move, you win the game.
This Spanish game is actually thought to have originated in the Middle East. It’s likely that the Moors brought the game with them when they invaded Spain, which subsequently lead to the game becoming known in other parts of Europe.
