Challis Ghutia (Titagarh) DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Southern Asia

Category Board, War, Leaping, Lines


Chalis Gutia as played near Titagarh outside Kolkata, India was played by people from all over India working in a mill there. It has a degree of flexibility in the number of pieces used on the same board.


9x9 board played on the intersections, with diagonals for each 3x3 square. Typically played with 24 pieces, but any number up to 40 is possible. Pieces are arranged on the spots in the rows closest to the player, with those unable to fill a row placed on the right points of the next available row. Players alternate turns by moving a piece to an adjacent empty spot along the lines on the board. A player may capture an opponent's piece by hopping over one adjacent piece if there is an empty spot behind it along a line on the board. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.

Datta 1939: 258.
