Latrunculo is a Romulan game of stylized strategy, akin to the human game chess or the Klingon game klin zha. It is played on a rectangular board, "classically" colored tan with gold lined to separate the spaces.
In latrunculo, a player eliminates enemy pieces by pinning them between his own. One piece, the Centurion, has the ability to leap over other pieces (within parameters), like a chess Knight or klin zha Flier. (TOS novel: The Final Reflection)
