Intellectual board game that promotes strategic learning and develops arithmetic skills.
Toguz Korgool is a national intellectual game that promotes strategic learning, develops a vision and stimulates brain activity. During the game, opponents have to use all four basic mathematical actions, and the faster you count, the more profitable it is. But the game is built not only on the speed of counting but also on game tactics.
The root of the game comes from mancala board games. Toguz Korgool has been played in Central Asian countries for centuries and the design of the board still remains uninteresting and straight forward. The game is played in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, the Republic of Karakalpakstan in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, parts of Russia (Altay, Khakassia, Sakha, Tartaria, Tuva), by the Kazakh minority in western Mongolia and in north-western China.
