Pente Grammai (Five Lines)
Ruleset: Locos Ludi Race


See the game Pente Grammai for more details.


Ancient, Medieval


Pente Grammai as a race game from the Locus Ludi project.


These rules were given as a possible reconstruction as a race game by the Locus Ludi Project.


Five pieces per player. One six-sided die. Players move their pieces onto the board using the throws of the dice. A piece must be brought onto the board if it is possible. Pieces move in an anti-clockwise direction around the board. Only one piece may be placed on a point at a time, except for the central line, which is the "sacred line." The first person to collect all of their pieces on the sacred line by reaching it on the opponent's side of the board by an exact throw wins.
