The game of ‘Bagh Chal’ or ‘Tiger Game’ is a game similar to drafts which has its origins in Nepal. In the game two players use two sets of opposing pieces, 20 ‘Goat’ pieces and 4 ‘Tiger’ pieces. The object of the game is for the ‘Tiger’ player to capture 5 ‘Goats’ by moving a piece over them, as in drafts. The object of the game for the ‘Goat’ player is to prevent this from happening by surrounding the ‘Tiger’ Pieces so no subsequent moves can be made.
Following the latest Government guidance regarding COVID-19 and careful consideration of the current situation, The Gurkha Museum has decided to close its doors to the public in the interest of visitor and staff safety, effective immediately.
The Museum will remain closed until further notice but will continue to operate behind the scenes with reduced staff on call to answer queries during this time. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will issue updates through our website and social media channels as soon as we become aware of further changes to our operations.
May we thank our Visitors, Friends and Supporters for their understanding and support through this difficult period.
