Abstract : The paper describes a computer program that performs all of the functions of referee for the game of Kriegsspiel, a variation on the game of chess. The rules of the game are explained, users' instructions are given, and a description of the program is provided. While not a game-playing or heuristic program in itself, the program contains all the necessary routines for the basic representation of a dynamic chess game, and may thus be used as the core upon which could be built the heuristics for an actual chess-playing program.
