Mak-yek is a board game played in Siam and Malaysia (under the name Apit-sodok). It is a game of custodial capture. An 'Edges' variant is available that uses the edges of the board in captures.

nih 2 The two different capturing mechanisms lead to interesting tactical situations, unless the opponent is determined to stalemate. The 'edges' version is more bloody but seems a little contrived. How about an 'edges' version where the board wraps around, horizontally and vertically?
Aaron 1 National games are not always perfect, but I find they are often quite original. The Edges variant makes this game even more bloody.
Nandi 1 Much better with the "edges rule".
Cerulean 0 Meh. Probably innovative a century ago. Not bad, but low priority.
Laurie_Menke 0 I don't really enjoy this game much, but I agree that the Edges variant is an improvement.
unic -1 Seems likely to stalemate.
jonah -2
nycavri -2 Another game I completly fail to grasp.
pinkpan -2 This is definitely not
my game. To much "blood"
