The guardsmen win if they can force the three musketeers to be all on the same row or column.The musketeers win if they don't have any legal move on their turn (as long as one musketeer can move, the game is not won).
Players move alternatively, starting from the player controlling Musketeers.
The musketeer player can move one of the musketeers to any horizontally or vertically adjacent cell occupied by a guardsman. The guardsman is removed from the game.
The guardsman player can move one of the guardsmen to any horizontally or vertically adjacent unoccupied cells.
