What reviewers are saying is saying "Tharle Games has already given us War In Galaxy, now delivering another great Entertainment & Board game and iphone app on the store."

Are you playing this amazing and fulfilled ancient game?

Truly the game is older than AD and has been mention in mythological documents as a record. Chowka Bara is an ancient Asian board game. It is played by 2 to 4 players on a board with a grid of 5x5 squares.

Like many such games there are regional variations. It is played by young and old, rich and poor in villages and towns. It is a poor cousin of another famous board game which originated in India. Unlike Chess, which is a pure game of skill, in Chowka Bara players throw dice whose outcome influences the game? Still strategy is important and can offset unfavorable outcome of dice. Quite often 'cowries' (a special kind of sea shells) substitute for dice. You can setup a game almost at no cast.

As if now, we bring this exclusive game on iOS to introduce you all with one of a kind board game. Inspite of very few people who posses knowledge of this game play, we believe introducing this board game to iDevice users gives a new era and fun as an ancient board game.
