### Slimetrail

Abstract game invented by Bill Taylor in $1992$ using a $8 \times 8$ board, a white stone and about sixty black stones. The squares marked by $1$ and $2$ are the final squares of the first and second player respectively. The white stone is in the $e5$ square at the start of the game. The goal of the game is to move the white stone for the final box of one of the players or block the movements of the opposing player.

Rules

Each player, in turn, moves the white stone to an adjacent empty square (vertical, horizontal or diagonal). In the square where the white stone was placed earlier, a black stone is placed and this square can not be occupied by the white stone again.
