Description

Tsaydithl is a race game played by the White Mountain Apache people of Arizona.

Rules

Forty stones, placed in a circle with a larger space after every tenth stone. The spaces between the stones are the playing spaces. Two to four players, each with one counter. Three sticks, round on one side and flat on the other, used as dice. The throws are as follows: three round sides = 10; three flat sides up = 5; one round and two flat = 3; two round and one flat = 1 or 2. Players move from one of the wider spaces around the board in opposite directions. When a player lands on the same spot as the opponent's piece, the opponent's piece is sent back to the beginning. The first player to complete a circuit of the board wins.
