Rek is popular Ancient Khmer Board Game played by two people on the board of 8X8 squares. The Cambodian transitive verb Rek means carry on ones shoulder a pole at each end of which is a container, bundle or object. In this kind of play, you are in a more dangerous situation for preserving too many own units, but if you do not have enough of them to design your scheme of making a right series of the opponents moves, it is not good either.
