purpose of the project is to spread a folk game throughout the world and to
popularize “Ajua-Chennemane game” among the people of current and upcoming
generation. As there isn’t any existing system to play the game, our main aim
is to give a platform to this declining folk-game
1. On his turn a player
distributes the contents of one of his holes in the ensuing holes, one by one,
in a counterclockwise direction. If the last seed falls into an occupied hole
and the next hole is empty, the contents of the succeeding hole are lifted. Now
another player gets the opportunity to play. If he gets only one seed, it is
called “Puyinka” else it’s known as “Bule”.
2. If the last seed in hand is
placed into a murte, its contents become wanasu (“meal”), that is, all four
seeds are captured and put in the player’s store.
3. Afterwards the player
continues his move by distributing the seeds of the following hole.
4. The move ends when the last
seed is placed in an empty hole, when the hole following a wanasu is empty or
after an atappe play.
5. The game is played until a
player can demonstrate at his turn that in four consecutive draws he does not
have to place a seed in one of his opponent’s holes. That player wins the seeds
that are still remaining on the board.
6. The player who captured more
seeds has won the round.
7. The successive rounds are
played by filling the holes on the player’s side with his winnings.
8. The game is over when at
the end of three rounds. The winner will be the one who captures more number of
seeds. The phrase to claim victory is poli maipunu (“plunder”).
The project will:
the score scored in the last match and an SMS alert is sent to the previous
record holder, if a new record is created
- Provide the user (players) to secure his
account using ‘username’ and ‘password’.
- Store, update and display the score of
each player, during the course of the game.
Using the code
The app will be developed in Visual
Studio 2012 and target Windows 8 desktop mode. The programming language will be
data. For data visualization.
