Rules Played by two to five players. Each player has three heaps of counters, with twelve counters per heap. Sowing occurs in an anti-clockwise direction. When a player creates a heap containing three counters in an opponent's heap, a circle is drawn around the heap and the player captures every counter placed in it. When there are no heaps left, the player with the most counters wins.
Content "In a village near Erzurum (eastern Anatolia) it is called Piç, there are no holes, and it is played either with corn or beans instead of stones. It can be played by two to five players, and each player has three heaps of beans or grains of corn, each heap with twelve (or nine) counters; these heaps are called kuy. If one player succeeds in making the number three in the other player's heaps, he owns that heap, and marks it by encircling it with chalk; every ear of corn or bean put in that heap then is his property. When there is no heap left, whichever player owns most of the beans or corn is the winner." and 1979: 52-53.
