To play the game you need a 4 by 4 board, 2 L pieces and 2 counters. Place the pieces on the board as shown.

How to win: The winner is the player who blocks in their opponent’s L shape so the opponent cannot move.

Rules: From this starting position, the first player chooses an  L shape and moves it on the board, then can choose whether or not to move one of the counters. Pieces cannot overlap. The second player moves the other L shape, then after that one of the counters if they wish. Players can only move their own L shape but they can move either counter.
