TWO MAY DARE TO ROLL THE DICE
YOUR COUNTERPART MAY PAY THE PRICE
FOR IN PETIJU ONE PREVAILS
WHEN THE RIDDLES SHOW YOU MUSTN’T FAIL


in december 2015 some friends and i discovered a document titled PETIJU rules.docx. the document had been saved onto a friend's user account on a shared desktop computer in my school's linguistics & cognitive science lounge/project room. it came with the following information:

after a fair bit of searching, we weren't able to find anything else about the game, its creator/author, or state of completion, aside from a file in the same folder with similar creation + modification dates, titled jungle mural.docx.

known characteristics of PETIJU:

  • components: dice, ?
  • players: 2
  • rules: relatively unknown. dice are rolled. riddles are solved. doubles grant a second roll. reaching "petiju" ends the game. there is one winner.

this game and its rule system are incomplete – but they can act as a seed around which other games may be formed. you are hereby invited to create a game around these fragments and components and link it below if you so choose.
