M'bao board

Description: 
M'bao, a board. 64 stones, and they play around only on their side - but reach across and start back one on their side when playing. Apparently to land in a vacant space stops the play except on special cases where they pass to next two and move forward (this may be conditional on there being only one or two in each hole at these places).
