When a player places three pieces in a row along one of the lines on the board, they remove one of the pieces belonging to the opponent.

Content "The games no. 4 is played by two men, each having 12 ballets in his possession. It is also learnt at Jowai. Each player alternately puts one of his ballets on the cross-points, trying to get three pieces along one line while preventing his opponent from doing so. Whenever a player is successful in making three of his own pieces in one line, he captures one of the pieces belonging to his opponent. After all the pieces have been put on the cross-points, the players begin to move their pieces alternately and along the lines, having always in view the two-fold object outlines above. The player who captures all the pieces of his adversary wins the game." Das Gupta 1935: 154-155.
