Mogul Putt'han




South Asia


Played in the Bengal region of India. Very similar to Indonesian Dama, and both seem to be derived from alquerque. Game is played on an alquerque board with 5x5 intersecting lines and with a triangle appendage on either side. each player has sixteen pieces, which are placed on the intersections and move along the lines to the next open intersection. Players can jump opponents pieces to capture them. Players must capture if possible. Multiple captures in one turn are allowed. A player wins when they capture all of the opponent's pieces or block them from being able to move.
