Tigers eat cows

Tigers eat cows

Khlaa Syi Kau is a traditional game in Cambodia. It can be translated literally “ Tigers eat cows”.

Two sides take part in the game: 4 tigers trying to eat the 12 cows that defend themselves by blocking the tigers.

Below, the funny tiger is ready to eat a cow. It has 2 opportunities: one on its left-hand side  and one on its right-hand side.


To protect themselves, cows try to block the tiger but this time it is too late. One cow cannot be protected and…


… the tiger jump over it!


The cow has been eaten!


But the game still continues until the tigers capture all the cows or the cows block all the tigers.
