Goat and Tiger Game is a traditional South Indian strategic two-player game where the tiger hunts the goat. The storyline of the game includes three tigers controlling 15 goats where one player controls the tigers and the other controls 15 lambs/goats.
The tigers have to ‘hunt’ the goats while the goats attempt to block the tigers’ movements following the a set of rules. The player who successfully blocks the tigers with his lambs, or the player who kills all the lambs with his tigers, wins the game.
The game board is presented as a foldable piece of cloth with Kalamkari painting, and is a classic in itself and is representative of the authentic Indian tradition and culture.
