COMPLETE GAME RULES

The game board is a square consisting of fields. The board size is between 5x5 and 9x9. Each field contains a one digit number between 1 and the size of the board. There is one empty field in the beginning of the game. Numbers can be moved by tossing them over one of their neighbors into an empty field. The move can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal in both directions. The tossed number will be placed into the empty field, and the number it jumped over will be removed. With each move there is one less number on the board. The game is over when there are no more moves. At the end of the game one or more fields may still contain numbers. The score of a move is equal to the number that is removed from the board. This score is doubled when the tossed number and the removed number are equal. Therefore each move has a score between 1 and 18. The goal of the game is to reach the highest possible score.

NO CHEATING WITH HIGH SCORES

The server calculates the actual score from the submitted sequence of moves by repeating them on the challenge. This technique prevents cheating by rejecting invalid move sequences and ignoring the score calculated by the client. The move sequences of submitted games are never sent to the clients to prevent players repeating other players' results.
