Traditional Indian GamesTraditional Indian Games are exciting and intriguing. When you begin to play an Indian traditional game, you will loose track of your time and simply can stop playing. Pachisi is delightful game which can be played with a board and some cowries or shells. Ashte -Kahste is another Indian traditional game which can be played with either 2 or 4 players using a 7 by 7 board and four cowries. Ganjifa cards were in the olden days used by kings and other noblemen. Ganjifa card pack used by rich and nobles were made of ivory, tortoise shells and contained precious stones too.
While shopping for traditional Indian Games, do check out the attractive dasavatara ganjifa cards, moghul cards and collectible cards. You will also come across chess sets made out of wood, handcrafted and magnetic chess sets too. Chess sets which are handcrafted and painted have an extra edge over the ready made or plastic chess sets.
