Game Theme & Rules
Lagori is a traditional and one of the most played ancient games that originate in the southern part of India. It was one of the most popular game in India around the 1990s. One can find the game history in Bhagavata Purana, a Hindu religious text written around 5000 years ago. It mentions that Lord Krishna played this game with his friends. The game is between two teams (Team 1: “Seeker” and Team 2: “Hitter”) and the game starts by throwing a ball by the seeker to break a stone tower called “Lagori” (see figure below). While the seekers try to pile up the stones again, the hitter throws balls to interrupt them.
