Now a days, so much attention and concentration has been directed to the use of games for learning, entertaining and many more purposes because of their ability to attract player attention and hold it for lengthy periods of time as players learn to master game complexities and accomplish targets. This paper describes the initiatives to develop a game to make a small contribution to our own culture by saving an almost extinct rural game & create its virtual form, so that younger generation of our country may know about our own culture and games.
