Chaupar is a traditional game played in India since the Iron Age (1500-600 BCE). It also finds mention in the great epic Mahabharat.
There are famous stories amongst kings passed on from generation to generation about kings who played this magnificent game.One particular tale tells of a King who had 2 trained mice called "Sundhree and Mundhreee". This king would distract his opponent with details, stories and tales. He would then casually utter "Sundhree and Mundhree"; at this point the mice would come and move the pieces around without the opponent noticing.
