You can move your tokens forwards, sideways and diagonally. When it comes to defeating your opponent’s tokens, you can do so in any direction – even backwards. You can also defeat a series of your opponent’s tokens in one go, provided that there is a free space behind each one. If you are able to defeat an opposing token, you must do so. Thus, even after just a few moves, ALQUERQUE becomes a battle for each and every token! Both players take it in turns to defeat as many of their opponent’s tokens as possible and remove them from the board. The question is: which player will have the final token? The slightest mistake can decide the game...

This Spanish game is actually thought to have originated in the Middle East. It’s likely that the Moors brought the game with them when they invaded Spain, which subsequently lead to the game becoming known in other parts of Europe.
