Vagh aur Bakri (tigers and goats) is a board game that can be played scratched into the ground with pebbles for playing pieces. Or, you can have this splendid version hand made by an older woman in the Kutch region of western Gujarat, India.
The artisan would have spent her earlier life embroidering fine stitches for wedding dowries and household items, but as her eyesight wanes, she turns to patchwork and toy making.
The idea of the game is for the goats to outsmart the tigers and stay alive. There are four tigers and one goat with the rest of the goats represented by crocheted balls, each with a tiny mirror embedded in it.
Hand block printed fabrics have been used to create the board and the animals, and it comes in a matching carry bag and with a full set of instructions.
The board measures 62 x 62 cm and the animals are about 11 cm tall.
Only one in stock.

Note, there is a tiny mark in the fabric which does not affect the beauty or functionality, but we have decided to reduce the price a little.
