Dear Experts,

The game that I am interest in is called TEEKO. I first heard about it from the book 'Scarne on Cards'; and the game was called after the author's son!

It is a 'four in a row' game, but is unusual in that you can also make a square, which adds another dimension. It can be played on a chess board, but using only 7 x 7 squares, using the white square. But is should really be played using circles instead of squares.

What I would like to know are the full rules for the game, and whether it is on (PC) computer?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Ken,

I'm trying to find the rules of a game called Kungser.
It's played with counters and I believe that it is Bhutaese or Tibetian.

Nice site. My name is Darryl Taylor. I'm from Ontario and would like to know if you have anything to do with a game called SHULLA (phonetic spelling). It is a Dutch Family Game. I know someone who has this game but nobody here knows the rules or how to play. It appears to be something like shuffle board. It is a fairly large board with open ended slots at one end. Pieces apparently are supposed to be propelled somehow and end up in the slots. Each slot has a numerical value. Can you help?? Thank you. My e-mail address is
