    Played with Shell-Shaped wooden pieces

    Cowrie shells are used in India for all purposes, from decorative ornaments to edging for clothes. They have even been used as currency in many olden civilizations around the world. Shells are available in various colours and sizes and are available in plenty. So, they have been a popular element in traditional Indian games. Shells are also often used as substitutes for dice. History makes references to Emperor Akbar playing games using such shells.

    As collecting cowrie shells in bulk affects our bio-diversity, our beautifully crafted shell-shaped wooden pieces are a wonderful substitute and give you hours of fun.

    Also known as: Nine Men’s Morris, Nav Kakri, Muhle

    This is a strategy game in which the aim is to get as many points as possible by getting three pieces in a row. Two players are given 9 coins each. The players try to move them to get 3 coins in a row. Although the purpose is similar to noughts and crosses, the game is far more complex as coins can be moved and the opponent’s coins can be removed. Suitable for children over five and adults.

    Aslo known as: Eight and Four, Kattam Kali, Chauka Baara, Changapoo, Ettu Veedu, Kattam Kazhi, Aada Sada

    Four players can participate in this game that's similar to Ludo. The purpose is to take your counters from the starting point to the safety of home. However, the game is traditionally played with cowrie shells instead of dice. To protect our biodiversity, we have discontinued the use of cowrie shells and we use game pieces made out of paper powder handmade by women. We seek your support in this initiative. This game is suitable for children over five and adults.

    Also known as: A Battlefield game in 24 Squares

    This is a game drawn from an old book written in Sanskrit by Harikrishna, son of Venkatram in the late nineteenth century. It is interesting to read the first stanzas of the book and appreciate the importance he gave to play.

    “I hereby describe the organization, structure and rules of this ancient shastra (games), the reason being that there is no such book available and the scholars do not study them. In this book there is a description of several board games, the intention of this shastra being that people will enhance their brain power by playing them.”

    It was about the same time that Krishnaraja Wodeyar of Mysore developed and promoted many similar interesting games.

    The game we have here is a simple strategy game described by Harikrishna as a game in 24 squares. We have used the Sanskrit description he has given as the name of the game. Chathurvimshathi Koshtaka simply means 24 boxes or squares.

    This is a battlefield game where two players with eight coins each battle it out to gain control of enemy territory.

    Easy to carry along and convenient to play anywhere. Priced reasonably, it makes great return gifts for parties or other occasions.

    Also known as: Pagade, Pachisi, Chaupar, Aksha Kreeda, Dayakattam, Chokkattan

    Chaupad (A Traditional Indian Dice Game) - Perhaps no other game is played in so many different variations all over India as Chaupad. The variations often have slight differences in the board itself, the type of pieces used or the rules and methodology. One of a family of cross and circle games, Chaupad is believed by many to be among the oldest games from India. Legend has it that Emperor Akbar played it on giant boards with women from his harem moving instead of game pieces. This game is believed to be the source for the popular game - Ludo.

    Also known as: The Top and String, Lattu, Bangaram, Pambaram

    Spinning a top is a fun experience for children - a skill that unfortunately seems to be dying out. Kreeda’s bambarams are brightly coloured in the trademark red and yellow. The non-rust nails make the top safer for the children. Suitable for children over five and adults.
