Notes

Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing.

The book contains the following description:

Based on Draughts, this game pits you (the round, mandala like pieces)
against the BBC Micro's pieces (which look a little
like Chess knights). You move diagonally, as in Draughts, and
you capture by jumping over the opponent's piece into an
empty square beyond. There are no multiple jumps. Each piece
can move in any direction (that is, forwards or backwards on
the diagonal).
You start off in the corner of the board, rather than along
the sides as in ordinary Draughts. You defeat your trusty BBC
Micro if you manage to capture seven of its pieces before it
manages to capture seven of yours. The computer will concede
the game if it decides you have such a lead that it could never
catch up.
You'll find the game runs very quickly, and the computer's
response time increases a little as the game progresses. You
move by entering a four-digit number, made up from the
number across the top then down the side of the piece you're
moving, then the number across the top then down the side of
the square you're moving to.
