|Variant of tchoukaillon|
|Used in maths research|
|This game is a solitaire|
|Stores are sown into|
|n holes per row|
The rules are the same as for tchoukaillon except for the following:
- The number of holes ("cases") is always finite.
- If a player still has counters in his hand, when he reaches the store ("roumba"), he continues to sow them starting in the left-most hole.
As in tchoukaillon a move is only legal, if the last counter is sown into the roumba. The object is to accumulate all counters in the store.
