The subtitles of the video are as follows:

Today, we play a new game. Its name is Lucky Star. This is how the board game is played.
Let's first draw a five pointed star on the paper.
Now, we need to put ten stones on the intersection and vertex of the stars.
Follow your heart, remove a stone, and a free place will appear on the chessboard.
Next, jump one stone over another, drop it in the empty space, and remove the stone that has just been jumped from the chessboard.
At the end of the game, only one stone on the board is victory, which means good luck, and anything you pray for will be come true. Note that stones can only jump, and can only jump one piece at a time, and cannot move to adjacent positions.
Now, let’s look at the short video to see how to play (it).

Thanks for that information on Lucky Star. I'm not surprised that it is different from what we have for Lam Turki; we have a couple of other games like this (Pentalpha, Nao Gutiya Baithaneka) which have slight differences. Lam Turki and Nao Gutiya Baithaneka are played in different parts of India, and Pentalpha is played in Greece. We find that many times, there are very similar games with slight differences in different places.

We can add Lucky Star to Ludii, and it would be great to be able to add some kind of historical or ethnographic data for it for our historical analysis. Do you have any kind of sources which talk about this game? If you got the information from your own work, would you be willing to let us know the specific regions or communities in China where it is played, as well as the date (rough date if necessary) when you first observed or learned about it?

Thanks again for your post!
