Konane is a strategy board game invented by the ancient Polynesians of Hawaii. The game starts with all the pieces on the board, in an alternating pattern of black and white. The player can capture the opponent's pieces, as in the game of checkers.


Traditionally the player with the black pieces begins the game. He must remove one of his pieces in the middle of the board or one of the four corners of the board. Then the opposing player removes one of his white pieces orthogonally adjacent to the empty space created by the player with the black pieces; two orthogonally adjacent voids remain in the board. From here, players take turns capturing the opposing pieces. Captures can only be made orthogonally. The first player who fails to capture an opponent's piece loses the game.
