Aadu Puli attam (goat and tiger game) is a strategic, two-player (or 2 teams) board game that's played in Tamilnadu. The game is asymmetric in that one player controls three tigers and the other player controls up to 15 goats. The tigers 'hunt' the goats while the goats attempt to block the tigers' movements.

General gameplay

At the start of the game all the 3 Pulis (tigers) are placed on the apex, and 2 inner places closest to the apex. All adus (goats) start off the board.

The pieces must be put at the intersections of the board lines and moves follow these lines.

The player controlling the adus moves first by placing an aadu onto a free intersection on the board. Then it is the puli' sturn. One puli is then moved to an adjacent position along the lines that indicate the valid moves. Moves are alternate between players.

Puli capture aadu by jumping over them to an adjacent free position (as in checkers). Aadu can not move until all 15 have been put on the board.

The pulis must move according to these rules:

*They can start capturing adus any moment after the match has started.
*They can capture only one aadu at a time.
*They can jump over a goat in any direction, but it must be to an adjacent intersection following any of the lines drawn on the board.
*A Puli cannot jump over another Puli.

The Aadu must move according to these rules:

*They must leave the board when captured.
*They can not jump over the Pulis or other adus.
*They can only move after all 15 have been put on the board.

Puli wins if all the adus are captured. Aadu wins if all Pulis are blocked from movement.

Equipment

Adu: 15 small pieces. Puli: 3 big pieces. Board with lines.

Object

Adu's objective is to encircle Puli so that none of the Puli can move. Puli's objective is to kill all the Adus.

History
