Dööv (Doov)DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Eastern Asia, Northern Asia

Category Board, War, Leaping, Diagonal


Dööv is a capturing game played in Mongolia. Each player plays as a pack of dogs (one pack spotted, the other black), who jump over opposing dogs to capture them.


8x8 board. Eight pieces per player, which begin on alternating squares in the first two rows on opposing sides of the board. Players alternate turns moving one of their pieces to an adjacent space. Pieces move diagonally forward only. A piece may capture one of the opponent's adjacent pieces by hopping over it to an empty adjacent space immediately on the opposite side of the opponent's piece. Multiple captures are not allowed. When a piece arrives at the opposite edge of the board from where it began, it is promoted and may move diagonally forward or backward. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.

Popova 1974: 34, 36-38.
