Title: Bridging Tradition and Mathematics: A Study of the Peach Stone Bowl Game (120 kB) PDF file


This presentation embarks on a journey to bring traditional games into the mathematical spotlight. We focus on "The Peach Stone Bowl Game", a traditional Iroquois game, and explore its structure using Markov chains and graph theory. We will unravel the game’s complexities and provide a novel understanding of its mechanics, bridging the gap between tradition and modern mathematical analysis.
