Games: Bagh Chal / Tigers & Goats

Games: Bagh Chal / Tigers & Goats


Nepal's national board game is bagh chal, literally 'move the tigers' (bagh = tiger; chal = move). This is a fascinating and engrossing game requiring concentration and skill. The game is played on a lined board with 25 intersecting points and requires two players. One player has four tigers, the other has 20 goats - the aim is for the 'tiger player' to 'eat' five goats by jumping over them before the 'goat player' can encircle a single tiger and prevent it moving.
