PATOLLI
Mesoamerica
Race game

HISTORY
+ Patolli is an ancient Aztec board game that takes its name from the Aztec word for bean - patolli, which means kidney bean or fava.
+ Patolli or variants of it was played by a wide range of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures and known all over Mesoamerica: the
Teotihuacanos played it, as well as the Toltecs, the inhabitants of Chichen Itza, the Aztecs, and all of the people they conquered
(practically all of Mesoamerica).
+ It was a game of strategy and luck, and very much a game of both the common people and nobles alike.
+ Players would meet and inspect the items each other had available to gamble. They would bet blankets, maguey plants, precious
stones, gold adornments, food or just about anything. In extreme cases, they would even bet their homes and sometimes their family
and freedom.

HOW TO START
+ To start you need to have the Patolli game board.
+ Five or six black beans were first used as dice, but later it was common for this game to be played with real dice.
+ The game pieces were 6 red and 6 blue pebbles - each player controlled one color.
+ To get on the game board and start playing you most roll a 1. You can roll 5 times in a row and if you still don't roll a 1, you pass the
dice to the other player and you will have to roll again until you get on the board.

RULES
+ The gameboard of Patolli.
+ The opponent is then required to transfer ownership of one of the items being bet
+ There are two special squares marked at the end of each arm of the X. A player who lands on one of these squares must roll the dice
and take another turn.1
+ If the toss shows five holes, then the player must choose one game marker to move ten spaces.
+ The four landing positions in the middle of the X are a special area. A player who lands a marker on the opponent's marker in this
area can remove the opponent's marker from the game board and put it back into the opponent's starting line.
+ The other special area is marked by two darker triangular shapes near the end of each arm of the X. If a player should land a marker
inside one of these triangular areas, the player must transfer ownership of an item to the opponent.

GAMEPLAY
+ After a player has a game marker on the game board, the player must move one of the game markers the same
number as seen on the dice.
+ If the player isn't able move because he would overshoot the ending square or land on an occupied spot,
then he loses that turn.
