This game from Swedish Lappland represents the struggle between landowners and the tribal Sami ( Lapps ). The Sami king, prince and warriors face off against the landowner, his son and tenant farmers. The game is won by a player when his opponent loses all their pieces, cannot make a legal move, or resigns; a draw can be arrived at by mutual agreement or after making a predetermined number of moves per side without a capture. Pieces capture other pieces by jumping over them. However, a piece cannot capture another piece above its rank.
The game is related to the Alquerque family but uses a larger and differently-arranged board.
