enter image description hereI do not remember if it is competitive, cooperative or solo game.

  • It is played with small cubes having a different marking on each side representing directions such as straight, turn, an X, diagonal, and two other symbols I don't recall.
  • The board has numerous square notches in it for the cubes to fit in. The notches are aligned in columns/rows similar to a chess board with connecting lines.
  • I do not know what the goal of the game is.
  • I know that the cubes can only be moved in the direction of the marking on the current face of it.
  • It's possible the game may even be ancient in origin.

I found the game in a book of games that no longer exist. There were diagrams of the game along with detailed playing instructions. I made a physical copy of the game about 20 years ago, but accidentally threw it out last year. The book I found it in was one of those history-of-board-games books, but I do not remember the title and I've not found the game in other books of those type.

  • Can you make a guess on the title of the book you had it from?

    Why did you tag this quoridor? Quoridor is a specific game which, as far as I can tell, this question is unrelated to. Jun 11 '18 at 13:02
  • @Gary N. it looks like you may have split into two accounts by accident, you may want to contact a Mod to have them merge back your accounts.

  • Was the book "The Way to Play" ? amazon.com/Play-Illustrated-Encyclopedia-Games-World/dp/… Oct 3 '19 at 3:03

Its form is that of "Tigers and Goats" or "Tiger Move" (Bagha Chal), and its cell number indicates that it is a puzzle rather than a game, or variant.

  • The cube appears to be nothing to do with Bagh-Chal, as far as I can determine from this wikipedia article.
