Description

Dimraw is an alignment game played in the Trarza region of Mauritania. Unlike most other alignment games, one player starts at a disadvantage, with fewer pieces than their opponent.

Rules

Three concentric squares. One player plays with twelve pieces, the other as sixteen or more. The player with fewer pieces plays first. Players alternate turns placing a piece on the corners of the squares, or the midpoints of the outer two squares. When a player places three pieces in a row, either along the lines, diagonally along the corners of the squares, or with two in the midpoints of the outer squares and the third in one of the two nearby corners of the central square, they remove one of their opponent's pieces.

These rules were taken from the Dimraw ruleset.
