Content "Do-Guti. As is implied by the name do-guti (=two gutis, or pieces), each player begins the game with two gutis which they have to place on any of the 'cross points' alternately. The movement of the pieces then begins from one 'cross-point' to the next along the lines as drawn in figure 1. Each player tries to checkmate his adversary by these movements, and whoever succeeds in this attempt is the winner. In this game no piece may be captured by any player." Gupta 1926a: 143.
