Content "Dash-guti (fig. 2) —The diagram for playing this game is shown above. It has some similarity with the bara-guti diagram in having the main square outline, the two diagonals, and the two lines joining the middle points of the opposite sides of the square, while in the tri-section of the diagonals and the drawing of the lines joining the points of the tri-section as shown in the figure, it recalls the type of diagram used in a Bhandara game. There is nothing new regarding the number of captures and the movement of the pieces.". Gupta 1924: 166. Murray 1951: 70 incorrectly cites Gupta with the board excluding the left and right sides of the square.
