Yut Nori (Yunnori) (sometimes romanized as nyout or yoot) is a traditional board game played in Korea, especially during Korean New Year. The board (mal-pan, 말판) is normally made of stitched cloth.
Although the origins of this popular family game are unclear, some research suggests that yut was played as early as the Three Kingdoms (57 BCE - 668 CE), citing the Taiping Yulan, which states that people of Baekje played a board-game similar to Chupu, There is a folk explanation for the game, describing a bet by some villagers to raise five different kind of livestock: pigs, dogs, sheep, cows and horses. The board and the game are known to have been used in fortune-telling, particularly in mountain-areas and small farming-villages, but this is no longer practiced.The modern board is a rectangular shape, but historically there was also a round variation.There are four straight courses and two diagonal ones.Each of the straight courses comes with five stations, the diagonal ones have five stations, too, but one is shared.This brings the number of stations to twenty-nine in total. Chestnut-wood is most commonly used, but birch-wood is also common.The board is also known to sometimes be drawn onto the floor. (These are similar to those used in the Egyptian board-game Senet.) There are two kinds of yut-stick: jang-jak yut (장작 윷) and bam yut (밤 윷). There are four sticks of about 15 cm in length and from 2 cm to 3 cm. These woods are chosen for their weight and the fresh sound they make when playing.
