Go head to head with this original strategy game that is so easy to learn and fun to play.
The object of Hijara™ is to accumulate points by forming number patterns on the board
while stopping your opponent from doing the same.
• published by Sterling Games - Hong Kong
The game Hijara™ has a board of 16 squares, divided into 4 squares ~
each numbered 1 through 4 from the numeral system, known in Europe and the Americas as
"Arabic numerals", introduced to Europe in the tenth century by the Arabs of North Africa.
Europeans did not know that the numerals' roots were in ancient India where they were developed by Indian mathematicians.
Today, they are the most common symbolic representation of numbers throughout the world.
The word hijara is Arabic for small stones....
Players each have 32 small stones and take turns placing them, one at a time, on any square on the board.
The one and only rule is - stones must be placed in any of the numbered squares in numerical order - i.e. the lowest-numbered open section.
So, for every square, the first stone must be on the 1, second on the 2, etc.
Start with an empty board, end with a full board ... with 3 ways to score points:
• 10 points - 4 same-colour stones on 4 numbers of a kind in a row - horizontally, vertically, or diagonally or, in the 4 corner squares
• 15 points - 4 same-colour stones in numerical sequence (i.e. 1-2-3-4) - horizontally, vertically, or diagonally or, in the 4 corner squares
• 20 points - 4 same-colour stones in one square
Squares need not be completed prior to starting other squares.
are scored throughout the game, overlooked points are forfeited and the game is over when the last small stone is placed.
Then, by comparing totals, the player with the most points is the winner of the game.
Hijara™ is a 3-D game on a 2-D board and always a challenge as no two games are alike and, it pays to pay attention.
