Permainan-Tabal is a two-player abstract strategy board game from Indonesia specifically from the island of Java. The game is sometimes referred to as a cross between Alquerque and Draughts. It is essentially Draughts played on an expanded Alquerque board. It is especially similar to Draughts in that the moves of the pieces are strictly forward and sideways until they are promoted to Kings by reaching the other player's first rank. The game is also referred to as Dama.


The player who capture all of their opponent's pieces is the winner.


The game uses an expanded Alquerque board. Two triangular patterned boards are attached on two opposite sides of the Alquerque board.

Each player has 16 pieces. One player has the black pieces, and the other player has the white pieces, although any two colors or distinguishable objects are appropriate.
