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.
