How to Play the Pallanguzhi (பல்லாங்குழி):

Five cowrie shells are placed in each cup. The player starting first picks up the shells from any of her holes and, moving anti-clockwise, places one shell in each hole. If she reaches the end of her cups she goes on the other side of the board. When the player drops her last shell, she takes the shells from the next cup and continues placing them in this way. If the last shell falls into a cup with an empty cup following it, the shells in the cup following the empty cup, are captured by the player.

That player then continues play from the next cup containing shells. If the last shell falls into a cup with two empty holes beyond, she captures no shells and her turn is over. The next player continues play in the same way.

If, after having a shell dropped into it, if a cup contains four shells which is called "Pasu" in Tamil, those shells become the property of the player to whom the concern cup belongs. The round is over when no shells remain.

Once the first round is over players take the shells from their stores and fill as many of their holes as possible with 5 shells each.

The winner will have a surplus of shells which are kept in her store. The loser of the first round will be unable to fill all of her holes. These unfilled holes are marked as "Rubbish holes.", and its called "Thokkam" in Tamil. Buy Chovi / See Shells at
