Anyone got any idea what this game is? A wooden board consisting of 8x8 grids of holes and 2 sets of 9 marbles (blue and green, all marbles in a set appear to be the same).

The label says ‘Oriental Chess’ by Lagoon Games but it’s not oriental chess from what I have found.

    If its comes with a label calling it 'Oriental Chess' you might not get a much better answer. Googling that name and publisher it sounds like it should have come with a set of rules? – StartPlayer Dec 29 '19 at 13:00

Oriental Chess by Lagoon Games

It looks like it is an old game no longer in production.
Here's a couple of pictures of the rules.

    Excellent - thanks very much. Although the game was bought new (from where I can't remember), I never had the instructions. – Steve Ives Dec 30 '19 at 12:50
  • No problem, I hope you have a good time playing it. – Ola Ström Dec 30 '19 at 12:52

    Im now inspired to try and write an iPhone version, as it seems fairly straightforward... – Steve Ives Jan 3 '20 at 15:56
  • That's nice, send me the link when you are done. – Ola Ström Jan 3 '20 at 16:10
  • Might be a while! – Steve Ives Jan 3 '20 at 16:14
