Bagh Chal - Nepali game

Saturday, 30 July 2011


Baghchal is a traditional board game of Nepal. It is quite simple to setup and play. The board is drawn by a combination of horizontal, vertical, and slanting lines. Each intersecting point can hold a piece, a tiger or a goat. The pieces can only move one step along the lines, except for the case in which a tiger can eat a goat.

The game is played between two players, one represents tiger, four in number, and the other represents goats, twenty in number to start with. The tiger can eat goats by jumping above it, while the goats tries to limit the movement of a tiger.
