RULES OF CONGKAK
1. The congkak board consists of two rows of 7 holes called the 'houses' and twobigger holes called the 'storehouse'.2. Before the game starts the 'houses' are filled with seven congkak seeds eachwhile the 'storehouses' are left empty.3. Both players begin simultaneously by scooping up all the shells in any house ontheir side. Each drops a shell into the next 'house' and continues clockwisedepositing one shell into every house thereafter. A player drops a shell into his'storehouse' each time he passes it but does not deposit any into his opponent's'storehouse'.4. How the game continues, depends on where the last shell of each scoop isdeposited.
IF THE SHELL DROPS INTO THE PLAYER'S OWN 'STOREHOUSE':
The player scoops up the shells from any of his 'houses' and distributes them in thecups ('houses') round the board but not in his opponents's 'storehouse'.
IF THE SHELL DROPS INTO A 'HOUSE' (on either side of the board) CONTAININGSHELLS:
The player scoops up all the shells in that 'house' and continues distributing them asdescribed above.
IF THE SHELL DROPS INTO THE PLAYER'S 'HOUSE' WHICH IS WITHOUTSHELLS:
The player is entitled to collect the shells in his opponent's 'house' directlyopposite his own. These shells collected from his opponent's house together with hislast shell are deposited in his own 'storehouse'. If the opponent's 'house' opposite hisown is empty, he deposits only his last shell in his own 'storehouse'. He forfeits his turnand stops playing. It is the opponent's turn now to distribute the shells.
