When the Mongolian Empire stretched its borders into Eastern Europe in the 11th century, they brought with them this game. It was adopted by the people of Poland and became a tradition there, where they called it Jarmo. ItÕs a jump-and-capture game, but the unique board gives it a very distinct strategic challenge. The game also includes a promotion of pieces with greater movement potential (like a King in Checkers) and when the game ends, the winner is determined by a points system, not just a goal on the board. A very unique and fun game with plenty of replayability. Made in USA.
