Probe is a strategy board game pitting you against the
objective is to capture Probe's Flag before Probe captures yours.
The game board is centered with your piece tray on the left
and Probe's tray on the right. Pieces still on the board display as
dimmed in the trays. The identities of Probe's pieces remain hidden
until after attacks, just as the identities of your pieces remain
hidden from Probe. Pieces may not move into the two areas in the center
of the board that display as lakes in the game board design shown below.
Piece movement and captures are
explained in the Rules of Play, but,
in general, pieces
attack by attempting to occupy the square of the opponent. Captures are
determined by the rank of the piece, with lower ranked
pieces defeating higher ranked pieces.
