Five Field Kono(오밭고누) is a Korean abstract strategy game. As in Chinese checkers, a player wins by moving all of their pieces into the starting locations of their opponent's pieces.


The players take turns moving one of their pieces one square diagonally; the first player to move all of their pieces to their opponent's starting squares wins.
