Seega (Siga, Sija, Seeja)
Ruleset: Khamsáwee (Khamsawee)


See the game Seega for more details.


Observed rules of Seega.


These rules have been observed by several ethnographers.


5x5 board. Players begin by placing their pieces in prescribed spaces, and then alternating two-by-two in places as they see fit, except for the central space. Once all the spaces except the central one are filled, the first player moves a piece one space orthogonally to the empty space. Pieces are captured by surrounding them on either side by a player's own pieces. Multiple captures are allowed. The player to capture all of the opponent's pieces wins.
