North Africa


Zamma is played in Africa, particularly North Africa. It is played on a square alquerque board with 9x9 intersecting lines with diagonals. Each player has 40 pieces. Pieces are placed on the intersections of the lines, and move forward along the lines to an adjacent unoccupied intersection. Once pieces reach the opposite side of the board from their starting position at the end of their turn, they are crowned "mullah" and can move in any direction and over any distance. Opponent's pieces are captured by jumping them. Captures are obligatory if possible, and multiple captures are allowed. The player who captures all of their opponent's pieces or blocks them from being able to move wins. Murray 4.2.35 Also known as Damma
