The Ilthmar Gambit was a move used in dejarik to gain a tactical advantage over an opponent's guarded position. The question of external versus internal threat was very subtle in this move, with closely matched win/lose parameters.

The player employing the eighth Ilthmar Gambit used a single playing piece as bait to draw out his opponent's defended pieces. After capturing the piece, the rest of the opponent's forces were left open to the player's follow-up attack.
