A Persian variant of Backgammon for 2 to 4 players. The game board shows a grid of 8x8 central squares with each of the four sides including 8 start courses in any colour. Starting boxes contain the numbers 5-4-3-2-2-3-4-5 and give the points value for the playing discs.
The player in turn throws two dice special. One tells how far its own disk may be moved (1-4 or wildcard), and the other in which direction (forward, diagonally, sideways or wildcard). Each player tries to bring across his discs as quickly as possible and preferably land them into those boxes that contain the most points.
