Wu Lu

Another game that I couldn't find any digital info. Fred Horn sent me the next information:

 And the rules in English:

  • WU LU is played with 6 Pawns for each Player. 
  • These 6 Pawns are placed in front of the Player, sitting left and right, on the Board upon the six indicated points at their side. 
  • Alternately each Player moves in his Turn one of his Pawn to an adjacent free point in any direction, but jumping is not allowed.
  • Players try to capture an Opponents’ Pawn by encircling with 3 or 4 own Pawns, so this Opponents’ Pawn cannot move any more. This Pawn is captured; out of the Game and removed from the Board. 
  • A Player with only 3 Pawns left on the Board loses the Game.

Be careful! When trying to capture one can be taken by surprise.
The most valuable points are those on the second line.
