Goats and Tigers Game is a turn-based, strategic, two-player (or 2 teams) board game that is played in south India. The tigers ‘hunt’ the goats and the goats attempt to block the movement of the tigers.

Goal: The objective of the tiger is to hunt 5 or more goats and that of the goats is to surround and immobilize all the three tigers

Contents: 1 Game Board, Wooden Counters- 3 +16 (the traditional turning technique of Channapatna has been used to create these stunningly beautiful pawns using organic colours) & 1 play instruction leaflet

Benefits: This helps develop strategy and concept of team work by teaching that even though weak, if united, one can vanquish the stronger enemy as a team.

 Adu Huli or Goats and Tigers was once a very popular game as we find this game pattern etched on stone floors of many old and ancient temples. The above game pattern is found on the parapet inside the mahadwara of the Chamundeshwari temple atop Chamundi Betta (hill) in Mysuru. 

This traditional game board made of fabric by the hand-weavers of Solapur in Maharashtra
