About the Game:

Gulugufe means ‘butterfly’ in the African nation of Mozambique. It s a two-player strategy game played on a board made in the shape of a butterfly.

Gulugufe is a very social game. It’s like a sport. Spectators cheer good moves and from time to time heckle the players, ‘All in good fun’. This version of the game has been modified to teach Mathematics concepts.

How to Play:

1. Set up the board as shown. 
2. The person with the next birthday goes first.
3. Players slide their pieces to empty spots and say the answer to the algorithm aloud for the opponent to hear.
4. Pieces are captured by jumping over them (the same as in Checkers)

Rules for Capturing Pieces:

– If a piece can jump over an opposition piece and land on an empty space the opposition piece is captured and taken from the board.
– Players can only move and capture along the lines marked on the board.
– Multiple captures – if a piece can jump over an opposition piece, land on a vacant space then jump over another piece, and land on a vacant space then both opposition pieces can be removed from the board.

Captures are compulsory!

– If more than one capture is available the player may choose which option they wish to take. 

Ways to Win:

1. Capture all your opponent’s pieces.
2. The person with the most pieces left when there are no more legal moves to be played.
3. Stalemate – is when one player has trapped the other so they cannot capture or make a legal move. The trapped player loses.
4. If no more pieces can be captured, the player with the most pieces remaining wins.

Draw:

– If no more pieces can be captured and both players have the same amount of pieces, the game is a draw.

Extension:

This game can be played in the sand or dirt. Draw the board with a stick and use stones as markers. I’ve played this game in the sand at the beach with shells and stones.
