The Bear Game was played in Roman times across the empire, from Gaul to as far as Byzantium. It is an asymmetric game where one player plays the bear (one counter) against an opponent with three hunters (three counters).  If the hunters corner the bear (and the bear cannot escape) they win. If the bear can avoid being cornered for thirty turns, he wins. If a player concedes their opponent wins.
