The minute you choose to play Mawala - The board game, you play as one of the Swarajya warriors accompanying Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj from his birth to Rajyabhishek. You don't play against the other player; players as Swarajya Warriors are together in this journey. The destination is Rajyabhishek.
You are to reach there and submit your earnings to Swarajya. Whoever submits more earns greater honor during the ceremony and hence wins!

Signs on The Board
Shivaji Maharaj was very particular about timely salaries of soldiers serving in our army.
On our board since players are actual warriors of Swarajya, they too are liable to get paid on time. So, every time a player lands on or crosses the Wages sign, he/she will get 200 Hones as salary.
The orange collar on the places implies a positive event during this quest of Swarajya!
The grey collar on the places implies a negative event during this quest of Swarajya!
Navy Blue Band
The navy blue collar on the places implies the places where we had lost a Swarajya Warrior while fighting!
Red Colored Places
The red coloured places on the board imply stoppage points. There are three stoppage points on the board. These are unmissable events. Players irrespective of the numbers on the dice will have to stop at these places.
