Played by the Tiwa Puebloans in the Southwest United States. First It is a hunt game, similar to Cercar la Liebre, and probably came to the Americas via the Spanish.


One player has a single pieces, the other has twelve, playing as jackrabbits. The player playing as the jackrabbits attempts to move all of their pieces to the opposite side of the board until they form the same configuration as the starting position on the opposite side. Pieces move orthogonally to accomplish this. The opponent's goal is to capture one of the jackrabbits by jumping it.
