Dintja le Nmutla DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Southern Africa

Category Reconstruction, Pending, Board, Hunt


Dintja le Nmutla is a hunt game played by the Sotho people of South Africa.


The board is a grid of vertical and horizontal lines. One player plays as four hounds, the other as one rabbit. The hounds are only able to move forward, the rabbit can move forward and backward. The hounds win by blocking the rabbit so it cannot move; the rabbit wins by moving behind the line of dogs so they are unable to block it.
