a great scary movie... I would\'ve liked to known how the game was played.. but other than that a great movie.

There are some jumpy parts. It didn\'t do it for me. I am curious about the game.

I have a game that\'s played the same way as the one in this movie.
It\'s called Mancala. Ages 4 to adult and very fun to play.
I have had it for years, you should buy one too.

pretty scary movie. if you don\'t mind a generic and average horror story of a haunted house, then go for it and watch this movie. it does its job with scaring the audience at certain scenes.

the ending was quite lame though when the caliph exorcised the demon. it was pretty cheesy but the scares were pretty good.

Having had many real paranormal experiences, I would hardly call Congkak a scary movie unless you are under 12 years old. If fact it is more silly than scary, but worth watching if you have not seen something like this before. Remember, if a house (right or wrong house) is too much of a bargain...there is a reason.

Congkak is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called \"Congklak\" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces.

Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count. It is believed that the game originated in Malacca Kingdom where it became very popular and spread to the South East Asia region. This spread was due to the many travelers who visited the kingdom because it was a trading city. In the early days it is thought that this game was for the king and family and the palace residents, however later it spread to the general population of the kingdom. As the congkak board is shaped like a boat it is believed that it is based on the legend of a fisherman unable to go to the sea during rainy season who lost his income during this time. To prevent boredom he created this game which is similar to his boat.

Equipment

The Congkak board has fourteen holes in two sets of seven, plus an additional store for each player. Each player controls the seven holes on their side of the board, and their score is the number of seeds in their left-hand store.

The pieces are 98 undifferentiated seeds.

Setup

Seven seeds are placed in each hole except the stores, which remain empty.

Objective

The objective of the game is to capture more seeds than one\'s opponent.

Sowing

Players take turns moving the seeds except in the first move which is performed simultaneously. On a turn, a player chooses one of the seven holes under their control. The player removes all seeds from this hole, and distributes them in each hole clockwise from this hole, in a process called sowing. Sowing skips an opponent\'s store, but does not skip a player\'s own store.

If the last seed falls into an occupied hole, all the seeds are removed from that hole, and are sown starting from that hole. The process continues until the last seed falls into a player\'s store, or an empty hole.

If the last seed sown falls into a player\'s own store, they immediately earn another turn, which can begin at any of the seven holes under their control.

Capturing

If the last seed sown falls into an empty hole on the current player\'s side, then the player captures all the seeds in the hole directly across from this one, on the opponent\'s side. If the opposing hole is empty, no seeds are captured.

Hey Geminate,
Nice description and history of the game-thanks! And for a low budget movie, this was pretty good.

what;s the significant of congkak in this movie?
Should make something more related to the thing.
It\'s again another lame movie from the same director.

By the way, I have the game at my home.
It\'s pretty hard to play unless u have good strategy.
moa (1/19/2009 @ 3:21 am)
OMG! This is a hilarious movie!! Hahahaha! It was like watching Street Fighter 2 in those scenes with the holy man. Don\'t watch it for the scares, watch it for the silliness. 5/10.

I used to play congkak when I was very young. Pretty interesting game if you don\'t have a computer or tv to watch..
KUMQUATS (2/24/2009 @ 11:38 am)
Not bad. A little cheesy.
sASsygUrL (3/7/2009 @ 3:34 pm)
there\'s just one thing i\'ve noticed. how come the keys fit into the kinda haunted house when it\'s not really their house? pretty strange but great movie though.
Freeman (3/12/2009 @ 9:06 pm)
CONGKAK!-CoNgKaK! come out and play! pertty good movie
rappaccinisgarden (3/27/2009 @ 4:11 pm)
kind of cheesy for me...
JadeMoon (4/8/2009 @ 6:59 am)
I thought it was very good. Not for the scare but for the story line. It was a very well layed out plot. Things were in pieces until the exorcisms started then the story began to unfold. I enjoyed the character Lisa- great character, great little actress. I have a little culture shock though, Whereas I can understand the basic Japanese, Chinese, Korean and even some Thai religions, I cant figure this one out. Everything except Allah, that the priest (I don\'t know what to properly call him) was saying was Christian in origin- God, Adam, Satan. It is intriguing stuff. If you get into the depth of it instead of the frill of a cheap scare, its a great movie.
Aguaro (5/28/2009 @ 2:33 pm)
Over all, that was a very well done movie. The storyline was great. The actors themselves were terrific. It was well balacned in all aspects making it a top 5 on my list. You cant go wrong watching this great film. Yes it is slightly under budget, but the effects and the air of the movie are on par. No worries, I give this movie a 9/10 screamers. This is a must watch, and is definently entertaining. It has very good jumper sceanes. Not very many movies make me jump, or give me the chills but this movie did. Have fun and enjoy this movie. It is definently not a sleeper.
