Dash Guti (Kowwu Dunki, Kowwa Dunki)DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Southern Asia

Category Board, War, Leaping, Lines


Dash Guti is a game with leaping captures played in India, and similar to many other games with similar movement and capturing rules.


Each player lays out the pieces on the board on the intersections of the lines, each filling all the intersections of the triangle closest to the player, plus the extra intersection to their right. Play moves to the next adjacent intersection connected by a line. Opponent's pieces can be captured by hopping over them. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.
