Content Account from Roberts: "Le guettal est un jeu analogue au jeu de dames. Chaque adversaire a douze jetons placvés sur un des côtés d'un carré ayant trente-deux divisions faites de lignes horizontales et verticales se coupaant. Chaque jeton est avancé vers le côté occupé par l'adversaire qui peut manger ledit jeton. Le joueur ayant conservé les plus de jetons sur le jeu gagné la partie." Robert 1921: 67.
