Abalone Board Game

I have to do a project at Computer Science for the end of the module and I am stuck.. I have to implement a game called Abalone(more like sumo with balls), which can be played between 2-4 Players and also the option to play vs a Computer(The AI doesn’t need to be perfect, can also choose random places, I do not care that much for the AI).

I have several slides with the rules fully explained, there are also rules on the internet, but for the record I will attach the visual of the board(which needs to be a hexagon), so you can get a better idea. I will also attach a PDF with rules(brief).

For example, for movement:
L-> Move marble(s) left if possible
UL-> Move marble(s) up left if possible
UR-> Move marble(s) up right if possible
R-> Move marble(s) right if possible
DR-> Move marble(s) down right if possible
DL-> Move marble(s) down left if possible

The game doesn’t need to be perfect, input and output will be the Console, so no GUI, but I want for instance in a game if I want to move:
-> 1 marble I type:
C3 DL which moves the marble(Down Left), now the marble being at the position D3
-> for 2 marbles(which are in a column):
A5 B6 UR, which means the column of marbles is moved up right and are now(B6 C7) and so on..

If you check the board coordinates I think you get what I mean.
On the slides I would provide, there is also a Class Diagaram indicating what classes should be use and I will also give a zip file with my TicTacToe project which has the same structure, so it can be easy to implement after seeing that.

I want a working solution so whenever I type the marbles and the moves, the board to be updated accordingly, always checking if marbles are out of bound, if the game is finished etc..

I absolutely LOVE this essay writing service. This is perhaps the tenth time I am ordering from them, and they have not failed me not once! My research paper was of excellent quality, as always. You can order essays, discussion, article critique, coursework, projects, case study, term papers, research papers, reaction paper, movie review, research proposal, capstone project, speech/presentation, book report/review, annotated bibliography, and more.
