Lagori, dikori or lagoori (Persian: هفتسنگ (haft sang), meaning seven stones), also known as lingocha, pitto or Sitoliya (Rajasthan) is a popular game in Northwestern India involving a ball and a pile of flat stones, generally played between two teams in a large outdoor area. A member of one team (the seekers) throws a soft ball at a pile of stones to knock them over. The seekers then try to restore the pile of stones while the opposing team (the hitters) throws the ball at them. If the ball touches a seeker, he is out and his team continues without him. But a team member can always safeguard himself by touching the opposite team member before the ball hits him.
