The list of valid moves is incomprehensible to humans without
actually drawing all the possible moves.  Without an exhaustive
check for validity, I think the following is an accurate summary:

  * Treat the board as a 5x6 grid with the corners removed and
    the top 4 cells merged.

  * Any piece can move one space up, down, left, or right.

  * A tiger can eat a goat by jumping over it, thereby moving
    two spaces up, down, left, or right.
