The only actual description of the rules known to me prior to Willughby is
Alfonso, who gives a rather fuzzy version with dice and a fairly clear one
without them. Supposedly there is also a body of 'problem'
literature from the Middle Ages on the game (associated with collections
of chess problems), which would probably also shed light on the rules of
play. JLS
