Tock is an offshoot Pachisi and prevalent in Quebec (Canada), Switzerland and the Netherlands. In France it is known as Le jeu de toc, in Switzerland it is mostly dog and in the Netherlands it is called Keezen.
Other related Games are Wahoo or Aggravation, in most versions equipped with marbles instead of cones, and Sorry!, which is most probably the successor of Tock.
