Solah Seedi is a battlefield game for two, where each player has 16 equally matched game pieces. The aim is to occupy enemy territory through strategic moves and planned efforts, thus defeating the opponent. It’s an exciting game, popular across India. Look out for inscriptions of these boards in old temples and monuments – proof that it has been played for years.
There are very particular and fixed rules to this game, much like how battles were fought in real life in the old days. Empathy and ethics form a strong basis for these rules which were followed to the letter, unlike the ‘win any way you can’ kind of policy with which we wage battles these days. For example, the way the pieces move forward in a straight line is very similar to how a column of foot soldiers marched during the war in those times.
Rules of this game are printed and shipped along with the box.
