Amazons,Walter Zamkauskas

Amazons invented in 1988 by Walter Zamkauskas of Argentina and is a trademark of Ediciones de Mente.


Amazons played on a 10 x 10 board. The two players, white and black are each given four amazons in predefined locations:


Each move contains two mandatory parts:
  1. The player's amazon moves like a chess queen - any number of squares in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line.
  2. Once it gets to its final position, the amazon throws an arrow that also moves like a chess queen. The arrow permanently blocks the board square it lands in. Both the amazon and the arrow it throws must move along a line that is not obstructed by another amazon or an arrow.

    This position happends after moves: g1-g7, g7-i7


There are no captures and no draws in Amazons!

The last player able to complete a move wins the game
