Description

Silva 1995: 228; Culin 1896: 603-604 Two rows of six holes with stores on either end. Four counters in each hole. Players sow in an anti-clockwise direction. When the last counter falls into a hole, and it now contains two or three counters, these are captured. VARIANT: 3 player: the game can be played with three players, one player with the first two holes in both rows, the next with the middle two rows in each row, and the last player with the final three holes in each row. The rules are the same except that three counters are placed in each hole at the beginning, and captures are made from the next hole in the direction of the sowing when the last counter causes a hole to contain two or three counters. Sowing may also occur in any direction. VARIANT: 4 player: The same rules as the 3 player variant except each player takes one half of a row as their holes.
