Description

Murray 7.4.4 Skeat 1900: 485-486 2x6/2x7/2x8/2x9 holes with a store on either end Play starts with same number of counters in each hole as number of holes in the row (6 counters if 6 holes in a row, etc). Store on either end. A player's store is the store to their left. Play is clockwise; stores included when sowing. Played by women. Play begins from any hole belonging to the player. Counters are sowed clockwise: if the final counter lands in an empty hole, in player's own row, they take the counters in the opposite hole and place them in the store. If play ends in the store, they can then take counters from any of their holes and sow again. if play ends in an empty hole in the opponent's row, play ends. if play ends in a hole with counters, those are collected and sowing continues. A round ends when there are no counters left in a player's row. The opponent then takes all remaining counters and adds them to their store. Next round begins with each player taking the counters from their store and placing the same number of counters in the holes as when the game began, starting from right to left. Surplus counters are placed in the store. unfilled holes are excluded from play in this round. Play continues as before. Play continues with as many rounds as needed until one player does not have enough counters to fill a single hole.
