Ancient play for the odd/even papamu is the same set up as the regular 8 x 8 board: black, white, black, white till the board is full.

     Black takes one black piece off from anywhere on the board and white does the same. (This is unlike the 8 x 8 modern board where you take from the middle or a corner.)

     Black takes the first jump.  A jump can be forward, backward, side to side and multiple jumps  and change of direction (like checkers) are allowed.  You do not have to take multiple jumps, you must make a jump.  The person/player with the last jump is the winner.

     The goal of the game is to block your opponent from making a jump.  Blocks are possible on the odd/even board,
even the Kamehameha Move: win in three jumps, 5 pieces removed from the board.
