Rules 4x12 board. Twelve pieces per player, one playing as sticks and the other as stones. Pieces begin on the board, one each in every space of the outer rows. Six sticks, with one black side and one white side, used as dice. Players choose who will play as black and who will play as white, and the throws are as follows: six black or white up = 6, five black or white up (called sir)= 5 plus another throw; four black or white up = 0, three black and three white up = 3. A player must throw sir in their colour to unlock a piece before moving it. Pieces move from left to right in their home row, right to left in the next row, left to right in the row following that, and then return to the second row. When a player's piece lands on a spot occupied by an opponent's piece, the opponent's piece is captured. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.
Content "Alors commence le jeu de siryu proprement dit où les siryu tiennent en réalité le rôle de dés, sur un damier tracé dans le sable. Deux joueurs s'affrontent: l'un choisit des bâtonnets pour pions, l'autre des cailloux. Ils conviennent d'une couleur: l'un joue sur les blancs, l'autre sur les noirs. Les points se comptent ainsi: 6 blancs...6 noirs: comptent 6 et avancent d'autant de cases; 5 blancs, un noir...5 noirs, un blanc: sir, 5 points et donne droit à rejouer; 4 blancs, 2 noirs...4 noirs, 2 blancs: mus, faute, on passe un tour; 3 noirs, 3 blancs: 3 points. Pour démarrer, il faut faire sir dans sa couler. Le joueur qui a couvert le maximum de cases libres tue les pions de l'adversaire et poursuit son avance. Le gagnant est celui qui a tué le plus grand nombre de pions lorsqu'il a progressivement investi tout le damier." Champault 1969: 353-354.
