Sho is an ancient Tibetan Dice game. A game pad is placed within reach of the players, with 64 cowry shells placed in an arc around one side of the pad. Each player takes 9 matching coins. 2 dice are placed in a wooden cup. The object of the game is to move all 9 of your matching coins through the arc of cowry shells, in a clockwise direction from one end to the other. The winner is the first to do so. To play; the dice are rolled around in the cup, then the cup is placed sharply (with a snap of the wrist) upside down on top of the pad. The following player lifts the cup, revealing the dice. On each player’s first roll, 3 coins are placed (make a space) past the number of cowry shells equal to the number showing on the dice. On following rolls, either 1 coin is entered into the arc or coins already in the arc are moved the amount of spaces showing on the rolled dice. There are Various rules such as "killing" the opponents coins and "stacking" your own, making them more powerful.
