Ming Mang is a two-player abstract strategy board game from Tibet. Ming Mang is also a general term for the word “boardgame” in Tibet. The game is played on an eight by eight game board.
The goal of Ming Mang is territorial control which is achieved by capturing and conversion of opponent’s game pieces. Ming Mang uses the custodian (flanking an opponent’s piece on two opposite sides) method of capture.
The winner is the player who occupies more than 50% of the game board which includes the player’s pieces and empty territories that it controls. Territories not controlled by any player are not counted.
Each board is made of 11-ply premium ¾” (1.895 cm) thick Birch plywood for long-term durability. Since wood is a natural product, each board has a unique grain making it one-of-a-kind. The boards are sold as either unstained or stained. The stained boards are satin clear-coated for maximum protection and easy cleaning. Each game comes with two sets of distinctly colored game pieces as well as detailed rules and how-to-play instructions booklet. The colors of game pieces are subject to availability.
