I'm bored, let's play a game

Not really obfuscated, just hard to read because I was trying to shorten it enough so that Netscape would let me use it as a sig file. I wrote it with 5.6.0 outputting in a bash shell, and I'm quite sure it's not terribly portable. You'll have to trim out the red '+'s, and join those lines, I think, to get it to run right.
@a=0..63;g(o($_),a($_)?$_<24?"w":$_>39?"b":0:0)for@a;$w=$b=12;while($w +&&$b) {$z=!$z if!$r;$i=" 01234567\n";print$i,(join"",map{($x,$y)=o($_);($x?" +":$y) .(a($_)?`tput smso`:`tput rmso`).(g(o($_))||" ").`tput rmso`.($x==7?"$ +y\n": "")}@a),$i;$z?&n:&c;g($f,$g,($g==7&&$z)||!($z||$g)?uc&w:g($d,$e));g($d +,$e,0 );t(1)}sub n{print"$_[0]xyxy?\n";($d,$e,$f,$g)=split"",<STDIN>;&v||&n} +sub t{ @t=($f>$d?$d+1:$d-1,$g>$e?$e+1:$e-1);if($s==4&&g(@t)&&lc(g(@t))ne&w +){if( @_){g(@t,0);$z?--$b:--$w;&b}1}else{0}}sub v{$s=($d-$f)**2;(lc(g($d,$e) +)ne&w ||$s!=($e-$g)**2||g($f,$g)||$f>7||$f<0||$g>7||$g<0||(($z?$e-$g:$g-$e)> +0)&&! (g($d,$e)eq uc&w)||!($s==1||t())||($r?$d!=$c||$e!=$h:0))?0:1}sub c{for +(@a){ ($d,$e)=o($_);if(lc(g(o($_)))eq&w){for(@a){($f,$g)=o($_);&t?return:pus +h@q,[ $d,$e,$f,$g]if&v}}}($d,$e,$f,$g)=@{$q[$#q]}}sub w{$z?"w":"b"}sub o{($_[0]%8,int($_[0]/8))}sub a{($_[0]%8+int($_[0]/8))%2}sub g{$n=$_[0]+8*$_[1];defined$_[2]?$j[$n]=$_[2]:$j[$n]}sub b{$d=$c=$f;$e= +$h=$g ;$r=(grep{($f,$g)=o($_);&v&&t()}@a)?1:0}die$w?"win":"lose"."\n"
I was happy for it to come in under 1k (1 byte under)

    Don't worry about the +'s - that's what the d/l code link is for. Good job!

    That's really clever! One small point; the game should end when a player is unable to move on their turn. For example, in this situation, black is unable to move, so white wins:
    01234567 0 w w # #0 1b # # # 1 2 # # # w2 3w # # # 3 4 # W w #4 5# # # # 5 6 # # # #6 7# # # # 7 01234567
      yes, there's another bug, where if you jump, and are able to jump again, but don't, and just move, the game sort of hangs, repeatedly asking you for a move, and then telling you it's invalid. Ah well, release 1.001 coming up, I guess.

    WOW... that is AMAZING!

    (win at ./ line 15, <STDIN> line 27. ;)

    It seems a shame that this was posted as anonymous. It deserves a ++ to the creator. Well done!

    Very funny Scotty... Now PLEASE beam down my PANTS!
      Holy cow! That's great! Fun to play, and written in Perl... very very cool... Congrats on the great script.

      Make something idiot proof and they'll make a better idiot.

    Well, you were wrong on the portability. It ran just fine on a bash shell with Perl 5.005_3 although I guess I'm still in a bash shell as you. Great Job!
