Hello everyone !
The game of "Polis" or literally of the "City" is a game of strategy, precursor of the game of chess.
It includes a board, the "Polis", divided into small squares and comprising from 32 to 60 black and white pawns (the dogs, "kynes"), which were each positioned on their side of the board according to their color.
The game was between two players who took turns moving the pawns on the different squares of the board, the goal being to capture and eliminate the opponent's pawns.
Each pawn could move forward, backward, left or right.
When the winner had minimal losses, his victory was all the more glorious.
This game was very popular and the champions of the "Polis" enjoyed great social prestige.
Good day and good game ;)
