Type Contemporary rule description
Location Hawaii
Date 1779-03-01 - 1779-03-31
Rules 14x17 board, two players, black and white pieces, moves similar to draughts.
Content "It is remarkable, that the people of these islands are great gamblers. They have a game very much like our draughts; but, if one may judge from the number of squares, it is much more intricate. The board is about two feet long, and s divided into two hundred and thirty-eight squares, of which there are fourteen in a row, and they make use of black and white pebbles, which they move from square to square." King 1784:144-145.

Type Ethnography
Location 19°38'23.86"N, 155°59'48.80"W
Date 1924-01-01 - 1924-12-31
Rules 10x10 board. The black player starts by removing one black piece either from one of the central four spaces of the board or from one of the four corners. The white player then must remove a white piece that is orthogonally adjacent to the empty space. Play proceeds by orthogonally jumping an opposing piece and capturing it. All moves must be capturing moves. Multiple captures can be made only by continuing in the same direction. The first player unable to move loses.
Content "As the game of konane has heretofore been described in little more detail than a game resembling checkers, I shall explain it as I learned it from a woman of nearly ninety years, Kaahaaina Naihe, from Kailua, Hawaii-the only native left who is known to be acquainted with the game...The 'men' we used were flat, black beach pebbles an inch in diameter and white coral pebbles of the same size. Kaahaaina thought these pebbles too large, she preferred ones of half this size and a board with positions for fifty white and fifty black pebbles...In the game of konane the two players sit opposite with the papamu set end on between them. Both players participate in setting (komo) the pebbles (ili) on the dots until they are all covered alternately with the black pebbles (ka eleele or ele) and the white pebbles (ke keokeo or kea). Then it is decided who shall pick up the first ili, which mst be one at the center (piko) one laterally next to it, or one at the corner. If the first person to choose picks up a black next to the center ili, then his opponent must pick up the white center ili, but; if he picks up a black corner ili, then his opponent must pick up a white one from one other side or the other of the corner. If a player removes a black at the beginning he plays with the blacks and removes whites which he jumps. The game now proceeds by each player jumping in turn. If a person can not jump in a turn, the game is ended, and the blocked man loses. Jumping must proceed away from or towards the player, to one side or the other, but never in two directions in one move and never diagonally. One may jump over and remove a line of men of rival color, providing there is a vacant position at the end of the line and providing none of the men are separated by more than one vacant position. The term holo means to jump and ku'i means to jump over the same course of the last move but in the opposite direction, thereby removing the man jump placed by the opponent. To win is ai, to lose is make....Men and women often played together." Emory 1897: 84-85.
