More detailed explanation:

Lagori is played between two teams, with a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of nine on each team, using seven stones and a small ball. Each team gets nine chances, 3 players taking 3 chances each, to knock down the stones that are stacked vertically, from a distance of about 20ft using the ball. If one team is unable to knock down the stones the other team gets the chance to throw.

In the first half of the game, if the throwing team knocks down the stones, the objective of the team is to stack all the seven stones back. The objective of the defensive team is to strike all the players of the throwing team with the ball, below knee level. Players on the defensive team are not allowed to run with the ball and have to pass between players to move the ball.
If the offensive team successfully stacks the stones first, the team receives a point. If the defensive team is able to strike all the players first below the knee, the defensive team gets a point.

At half-time, The defensive and Throwing teams now exchange the roles in the second half of the game.

Each half constitutes a duration of 4 mins.
