It's loopy!
Surakarta was named after the temple-strewn Javanese city, and its origins can be found there. An age-old abstract strategy game, it is considered a classic along with checkers, Go, backgammon and Mancala.

Surakarta is effortless to learn, with only two rules! The object of of the game is a familiar one: capture all of the opponent's pieces. The first player to do so wins the game.

Sounds easy, and it is at first --until pieces start doing loop attacks! That's what Surakarta is all about. It's the game that sneaks up and clobbers you from behind. Ow!
