Description

Mogul Putt'han is played throughout South Asia, documented since the early nineteenth century and likely is older. It is played on an alquerque board with triangular extensions on two opposite sides.

Rules

Game is played on an Alquerque board with 5x5 intersecting lines and with a triangular 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 hop opponents pieces to capture them. 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.

Datta 1933: 168–169.
