Video of Shoh – a dice game of Sikkim

If you are following me on Twitter, you’d have known that we had stopped at a small place called Sevok in West Bengal to satiate our hungry stomachs.

There, a little far from our table, we saw a group of locals playing this game. The group was making some sounds which made us curious. Language barrier and lack of time played against us in understanding the game.
Later when I came back, I searched on the net but could not find any information. I have already written here whatever I could gather from them, including the name and its spelling.
They did not tell me about wooden bowl or leather plate. It was me who looked at those things curiously and found out. 🙂

Here is a small video of this game.

Next time when I go, I will make sure to explore and learn this interesting game through some interpreter.
