Mu Torere
Ruleset: Complete


See the game Mu Torere for more details.


As observed by E. Best.


These rules were described by E. Best in the Early twentieth century. However, his description is unclear and the rule whereby a player cannot move to the center spot unless the piece to be moved is adjacent to an opponent's piece was misunderstood.


Play begins with the pieces on the kewai, each player on half of the circle. Players move by moving one piece to an empty adjacent space. Players can only move to the putahi when the piece being moved is next to an opponent's piece. The player that blocks the other from moving is the winner.


Best 1925: 60-61.
