Chauka Baara - 5 & 7 House
Chauka Bara is a traditional Indian game in which two to four players race their respective coins on a board of 5×5 squares to reach the innermost square. The movement of coins is controlled by a throw of four/six (5house/7house) cowrie shells which is explained in the game rules. Since each player has four/six coins (5house/7house), he can decide which coin to move. Since the movement of the coins spiral into the home, each player enters the next circle from next to their own home, taking risks & playing safe is all possible in this exciting game of strategy.
The player pawns are all lac turned and made using organic colors by the Channapatna crafts people. 24 player pawns ( 6 in each colour ) are provided for a maximum of four players to this game. Six big sized Cowry shells serve as the dice to the game.
The mat is double sided with 5 house & 7 house . The mat measures 15 inches square and is hand tailored by the rural women of Sathnur, Karnataka
