Kız Tavlasi (Kiz Tavlasi)DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Western Asia, Eastern Europe, Southern Europe

Category Board, Race, Escape


Kız Tavlasi is a race game played in Anatolia since at least the past 50 years, but is likely much older. It is a simple version of Tavla.


2x12 board, with spaces as points, divided in two. Fifteen pieces per player, which start stacked, two on the players' first three points and three in the next three points. Two six-sided dice. Players unstack the pieces by moving pieces off of the stack, but remaining on the same point, according to the throws of the dice. The value of the throw indicates the number of the point which can be unstacked. For example, a throw of 1 and 4 allows the player to unstack the pieces on points 1 and 4. Doubles allow the player to unstack all pieces on that point. The player then bears off the pieces from this quadrant of the board. Players bear off the pieces in the same manner as they were unstacked. The first player to bear off all their pieces wins.
