The game begins with each player having two plases plased diagonally in the center of the board. Every legal move must be adjacent to and opposite the computer's cat in such a way that you surround thet dog or group of cats between two of your dogs. You may capture any number of your opponent's cats this way in one or more rows diagonally, vertically and horizontally. If any player cannot make a legal move, they must skip that turn. To win the game, you must capture all of the computer's cats, or end up with the most dogs after the there are no legal moves left, usually after all of the spaces have been filled!
