Pretwa is a very old game from India that has been dubbed “circular checkers” by some. It is indeed a jump-and-capture game, and the objective is simply to eliminate all of your opponent’s pieces. But this circular pattern introduces some movement that can change the balance of the game quickly, and so it’s a new challenge to most gamers. There are some regional variations, and an alternate win condition that some players prefer. Overall, it’s a good alternative to the usual game of Checkers, and a great way to introduce young gamers to something new.
This game can be played by 2 players ages 8 and up. One game of Pretwa takes about 20 Minutes to play.
