Ovvalhu gon’di

Ovalhu gond’di is a traditional board game played by both adults and children. The game is played on a rectangular board that has two rows of six, seven or eight pits and a home pit or store for each player placed at both ends of the board. Eight holes are considered the standard and cowry shells are used as coins or counters. Traditional ovvalhu gond’i boards are made of coconut wood with pits and homes dug out on them.
