On each turn, a single hound moves to a directly connected empty square, followed by the hare's similar move. The hounds may only move vertically or forward (to the right), not backward. The hare may move in any direction. To move a piece, drag and drop it with the mouse.

There are no captures. The hounds win by trapping the hare so that he is unable to move. The hare can win two ways. He can escape, which he does by moving past (to the left of) all three hounds. Also, if the hounds move 10 times in a row without advancing (i.e. they only move up and down) then the hounds are stalling and the hare wins.
