This exciting game originated from the coastal areas of Scandinavia long back in early nineteenth centuries.

Contents of Daldos are quite unique. It mainly contains a board that is shaped like a boat. It has three parallel rows of holes. Two of these rows have sixteen holes each and the rest one, which is the middle one, has one more hole at the prow of the ship. Alike the sixteen holes, each of the players have to play the game with sixteen spatula-shaped pieces having bottom ends fitting into the holes. For playing the game, players use special dice. They generally have pyramidal or rounded ends with a four-sided rolling pin. Although every game has winning and losing as parts of game but this game is a bit different. The main object of this game is to remove all enemy pieces from the board. An enemy piece is removed when the enemy piece reaches the same location. If the enemy pieces make jump, then they can not be removed by the opponent player. However, players can not jump the friendly pieces.

The strategy of Daldos lies in removing the enemies faster. The pieces have to reach the prow as soon as the player can take it to the same prow. The players accordingly have to be very conscious while making every step. As a wrong step can make it easier for the opponent to make a convenient step and to win thereby, a perfect step can make the player a winner. Therefore, if you learn the game properly, the game can become a great fun for you and your opponent.
