Description

Unnee Tugullalax is a two-row mancala-style board game from Mongolia. It is typically played with camel droppings on a board. The game is imbued with the symbolism of the cycle of reproduction of a cow, as a hole fills with counters it progresses along the cycle of reproduction until it has four counters, when the calve is produced and the four counters are captured.

Rules

2x6 board. Six counters in each hole. Sowing occurs from any of the holes in the player's row. If the final counter lands in a holes in the player's row containing three counters, four with the addition of the final counter, these are captured.

Popova 1974: 17.
