Ludus Latrunculorum is a strategy board game practiced by the ancient Romans, we found some descriptions in Latin literature. It can be considered an ancestor of chess or checkers, rules are lost and have been imagined based on information found. The game consists of a king and pawns. Applied rules: Movement: king and pawns move horizontally and vertically without being able to jump over other pieces. Conditions of victory: You win by capturing all the opponent's pieces or by blocking the opponent's king on 4 sides. Conditions of capture, a pawn is captured if it is surrounded by 2 opposite sides by opponent, if the pawn is in the corner, can be captured by occupying the 2 sides free.
