Rules of the game Alquerque
Alquerque is the game selected for the CodeCup 2008. Here, you will find the rules of the game itself. Click here to see a sample game.

Technical rules
The technical rules explain how you should write your program. Everything about programming languages, compilers, reading input and writing output, etc.

Competition rules
The competition rules are all about the conduct of a competition, which players play against eachother, the ranking of contestants, test competitions and prizes.


The examples here demonstrate how a player program can communicate with the contest system. Algorithms for the game are missing in the examples, so the programs are not capable of selecting correct moves.
