[evlqigce] Konane

When playing konane on a checkerboard, place the light pieces in the dark squares and vice versa so that they have good contrast.

An odd by odd board starts with more pieces for one player.

What happens if all the pieces are identical?  Impartial konane, not a partizan game.  Both players may move any of the pieces.  Resembles peg solitaire.

Easily generalizable to more dimensions or other graphs with a notion of three nodes in a straight line.
