A Lone Elephant Attack is considered a very safe and cautious strategy and it was by far the most popular during the early years of Arimaa. As the name suggests, this attack requires only a single piece while the rest of the army stays behind. If both players employ the Lone Elephant Attack, it is known as a Dual Lone Elephant game.
