This rendition of the rules by Neil Bowers.

Background unknown. It is also marketed as Quo Vadis (by Invicta).

The board is as below:
+-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+
| | | | | | | /-\ | | | | | | |
A | | | | | | | |X| | | | | | | | B
| | | | | | | \-/ | | | | | | |
+-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+

The two players A and B sit at opposite ends of the row. At the
start of the game a token is placed in the central square. Each
player starts off with 50 points.

At each move both player writes down the number of points to expend
on that move. The player who wrote the highest number moves the
token one space towards (him|her)self, and both players subtract the
number of points from the current total.

The aim of the game is to get the token to the square closest to you.
If one player runs out of points, the other can keep making moves.
If both players run out, then a draw or half victory can be declared.

The game can obviously be varied by changing the number of squares
and starting points.

Powering Up, One Step at a Time
"We can harvest between 5 to 7 watts of energy per footstep that is currently being wasted into the ground... And a passing train can generate very useful energy to run signaling or to power lights."
