You can either move your man up,down or sideways or put a fence down.  Players can jump over an opponent that he is next to or jump diagonally if he is next to a fence.  Players cannot jump over fences.  Players can put a fence down to block an opponent, but must allow at least one path to get to his winning side.

== Overview ==
  
You have only 10 fences. There is a fence counter by your name. Set traps to delay the opponent and create corridors to a winning path.  You can concede the game by clicking on the square by your name and clicking "Concede...".  You must have completed 50% or more of your game.
