The game is similar to a dice game, which consists of a game board drawn on a thin square cloth with two diagonal lines and two transversing lines. Four large beans perforated with holes were thrown on the board and according to the position with respect to the lines a certain number of moves were obtained. The person who traversed three straight pieces won. The items wagered were precious things such as gold chains, precious stones, and fine turquoise.
