About Navakankari

Navakankari, also known as Nine Men's Morris, is a classic board game that has been enjoyed for centuries. It is played on a simple grid board with three concentric squares, and the goal is to get three of your pieces in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Players take turns placing their pieces on the board and moving them to adjacent spaces, trying to block their opponent's progress and create opportunities for themselves.

About Sholo Gutti

Sholo Gutti is a traditional outdoor game that is popular in India. It is a game of skill and accuracy that involves players trying to toss small wooden or stone discs into a small pit or goal. Players take turns tossing the discs from a designated starting point, trying to get as many as possible into the pit.
