Played by indigenous peoples in Brazil. The game is played on a board which is usually scratched into the earth, with stones or other small objects used as pieces. The board is square with intersecting orthogonal and diagonal lines, and with a triangular appendage to the square. There are 14 "dog" pieces and one "jaguar" piece. The jaguar attempts to capture at least five dogs by jumping them, and thus create a stalemate. The dogs attempt to surround the jaguar and block it. The game has been reported among several indigenous groups in Brazil, including the Bororo, Pareci, Guaraní, and the Manchakeri.
