But this 'sungka' the name of the Chinese game, do require 7 stones/shells in each hole except for the 2 bigger holes. One bigger hole will be the homebase of the other player and the other bigger hole for another player. In order to start the game, there will be a determination of who will start first (I forgot how though;). The first player will choose one hole out of seven and get all the 7 stones/seashells and then put one stone per hole after the hole which the player got the 7 stones, the player should put one stone on the homebase. The player's turn will stop if the last stone will be dropped on a hole with no stone at all. When there are no more stones left, whatever the stones placed in the homebase should be the basis of putting 7 stones each, if there are only 6 stones, then the player will place back to stones to the homebase and leave one hole empty. The player with less than 7 stones at the end will lose the game. We can play this game if you come here in Cebu, will teach you;)
