This is a game drawn from an old book written in Sanskrit by Harikrishna, son of Venkatram in the late nineteenth century. The game we have here is a simple strategy game described by Harikrishna as a game in 24 squares. We have used the Sanskrit description he has given as the name of the game. This is a simple strategy game described in many old texts. Chaturvimshathi Koshtaka simply means 24 boxes or squares in Sanskrit. This is a battlefield game where two players with eight coins each battle it out to gain control of enemy territory. Examples of this game board can be seen carved in old temples and monuments across the country.
