Content "Perali Kotuwa 'The War Enclosure' This is merely a variety of the last game (Hewakam Keliya), in which the two side rooms are retained, the board being thus the same as for Diviyan Keliya. Each player has seven more soldiers than in the last game, and in each case these fill up the outer room on his left hand, and three empty places are then left along the central transverse line." Parker 1909: 583.
