And it was in the days of the settlement of Qaṭan, that is Qaṭan the land of settlers, nineteen hexagons. In the first turn of its game, there were four armies there, and they were colored in red and in white and in orange and in blue. In the land, there were useful resources, and their number was five. Ore, wood, and bricks, grain and Daphoqian sheep, upon each and every hexagon in a random manner. Each and every resource comes from a terrain established for its manufacture — ore from the mountain, wood from the forest, bricks from the hill, grain from the field, and sheep from the pasture. Each and every hexagon was one of these terrains, but for the desert from which came out no resources; and the resources of the land of Qaṭan were abundant in excess. And the Jews of the land traded in resources — wood for brick, and ore for grain, but no army desired the sheep.

After these things the armies of the land raised Haggannav son of Haggazlan, the grey one, and set him up, and put his place over all the hexagons with him. And Haggannav was wicked and cruel, and desired all resources, and would pillage and take from his hexagon until there was no resource remaining. And Haggannav would set out from hexagon to hexagon and would pillage and set out, pillage and set out, in each and every turn. And the commanders of the armies saw that there was no ore nor wood, just Daphoqian sheep remaining, which they did not desire, and the commanders were very angry and their rage burned in them. And Haggannav was very afraid and said: “then the matter is known!” In the twelfth month, that is the month of First Adar, he rolled dice to know what to do, and plotted a plot and planned a plan to bring an evil scheme upon the Jews. And Haggannav said to the commanders of the armies: “There is a specific people scattered and spread out among the hexagons in all the lands of your game, and their practice differs from every people, and the practices of the commanders they do not do, and it is inadvisable for the armies to let them be. And do you not know that these Jews are greedy? They hoard all the wood and bricks for themselves, and give only the sheep to you! If it is good by the commanders, let it be written to expel them, and ten ore cards I will measure out to put in the commanders’ collections. And the eyes of the commanders were closed, and they gave permission to Haggannav son of Haggazlan the enemy of the Jews, and the Jews of Qaṭan were confounded.
(בניגון ימים נוראים מלודרמטי) בַּלַּ֣יְלָה הַה֔וּא נִקְטָ֖ע מִשְׂחַ֣ק הַשָּׁרִ֑ים (בניגון רגיל) וַֽיִּמְצְא֤וּ אֶת־עַצְמָם֙ בִּמְרִיבָ֣ה גְּדֹלָ֔ה וְלֹ֧א יָדְע֛וּ מָה־דִּ֖ין הַמִּשְׂחָֽק׃ וַֽיְבַקְשׁוּ֩ הַשַּׂ֨חְקָנִ֜ים לִתְשׁוּבָ֗ה בְּסֵ֛פֶר דָּתֵ֥י הַמִּשְׂחָ֖ק וְדִינָ֑יו כִּי־כֵן֙ דְּבַ֣ר הַשַּׂחְקָנִ֔ים לִפְנֵ֕י כׇּל־יֹדְעֵ֖י דָּ֥ת וָדִֽין׃ וַֽיָּבֹ֣אוּ לִפְנֵיהֶ֗ם אֶת־סֵ֛פֶר דָּתִ֥י הַמִּשְׂחָ֖ק וְדִינָ֑יו וַיִּהְי֥וּ נִקְרָאִ֖ים לִפְנֵ֥י הַשָּׁרִֽים׃ וַיִּמָּצֵ֣א כָת֗וּב כִּ֨י כַּוָּנַ֤ת הַגַּנָּב֙ ה֣וּא לִגְנֹ֔ב וְכַוָּנַ֥ת הַגַּזְלָ֖ן ה֣וּא לִגְזֹ֑ל עַל־כֵּ֕ן קָרְא֥וּ אֶת־שְׁמ֖וֹ הַגַּנָּֽב׃ וַתִּפָּקַ֙חְנָה֙ עֵינֵ֣י הַשָּׂרִ֔ים וַיֵּדְע֗וּ כִּ֚י־הָאִ֣ישׁ הַה֔וּא מְשַׁקֵּ֥ר שֶׁ֖קֶר וּמְדַבֵּ֣ר מִרְמָ֑ה וּמִ֣י ה֥וּא זֶה֙ וְאֵֽי־זֶ֣ה ה֔וּא אִ֚ישׁ צַ֣ר וְאוֹיֵ֔ב הַגַּנָּ֥ב בֶּן־הַגַּזְלָ֖ן הָרָשָׁ֥ע הַזֶּֽה׃ וַיְהִי֙ כִּי־שָׁמַ֣ע הַגַּנָּ֔ב כִּי־גָּל֥וּי הַשֶּׁ֖קֶר אֲשֶׁ֣ר שִׁקֵּ֑ר וַיִּבְרַ֗ח בֵּ֚ין מְשֻׁשֶּׁ֣ה לִמְשֻׁשֶּׁ֔ה וְלֹא־מָצָ֖א מָנֽוֹחַ׃
That night the commanders’ game was interrupted, and they found themselves in a great argument and knew not what the rule of the game was. And the players sought out the answer in the Book of Rules and Practices of the Game, for thus was the way of the players before all who know the rules and practices. And they brought before them the Book of Rules and Practices of the Game, and it was read before the commanders. And it was found written that the intention of Haggannav was to steal, and the intention of Haggazlan was to rob, which is why they called him Haggannav. And the eyes of the commanders were opened, and they knew that that man had lied lies and spoken deceit, and who was that man, which was he? The enemy and foe, the wicked Haggannav ben Haggazlan. And when Haggannav heard that his lies he had lied were revealed, he fled from hexagon to hexagon and found no rest.

And the commanders said to the Jews of Qaṭan, “Behold, the memory of Haggannav we have wiped out, and he himself was exiled from the land as he wished to do to the Jews.” The copy of the writ was to be given as law in each and every hexagon, revealed to all players, for the Jews to be ready for that day to avenge their plunderers. The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor and ore and wood and brick and grain. And the Jews wrote these things and sent out books to all the Jews in all the hexagons of the land of Qaṭan, near and far, to establish upon them to be doing the fourteenth day of First Adar and the fifteenth of it, every leap year, like the days on which the Jews rested from their enemies in the days of Aḥashverosh king of Persia, like the days of Purim done in the thirteenth month in the leap year. And the month in which it was flipped from desert to forest, and from plunder to fair trade, to make them days of feasting and joy and giving gifts one to another and gifts to the poor. And the Jews accepted that they would begin to do what was written for them. For Haggannav son of Haggazlan the grey one, enemy of all the Jews, planned against the Jews to exile them, and rolled dice (which are cubic) to force them out and exile them. But his evil plan that he had planned against the Jews returned upon his head, and he was exiled to be a ceaseless wanderer. The Jews established and accepted upon them and their seed and upon all who joined them never to be broken, to make these two days as written and at their time, in every leap year. And these days are remembered and made in each and every generation, each and every family, each and every hexagon, and each and every game, that these days of the Purim of Qaṭan would never pass from among the Jews and their memory would never end from their seed. And the topic of the game, the matter of these Purim, was established, and written in a book.
וַֽיִּבְנ֨וּ שָׂרֵ֤י קָטָן֙ אֶת־הָ֣רְחֹב֔וֹת וְאֶת־הֶעָרִ֥ים הַגְּדֹלִ֖ים בְּאֶ֣רֶץ קָטָ֑ן עַד־נֵ֖צַח נִצָּחֽוֹן׃ וְכׇל־מַעֲשֵׂ֤ה תׇקְפָּם֙ וּגְב֣וּרָתָ֔ם וּפָרָשַׁת֙ גְּדֻלַּ֣ת הַיְּהוּדִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר גִּדְּל֖וּם הַשָּׂ֑רִים הֲלוֹא־הֵ֣ם כְּתוּבִ֗ים עַל־סֵ֙פֶר֙ דִּבְרֵ֣י הַיָּמִ֔ים לְמִתְיַשְּׁבֵ֖י קָטָֽן׃ כִּ֣י ׀ יְהוּדֵ֣י קָטָ֗ן חָבִיבִ֤ים הָיוּ֙ לְשָׂרֵ֣י הַמִּשְׂחָ֔ק וּגדוֹלִים֙ הַיְּהוּדִ֔ים וּרְצוּיִ֖ים לְרֹ֣ב צִבְאוֹתָ֑יו דֹּ֤רְשֵׁי טוֹב֙ לְעַמָּ֔ם וְדֹבְרֵ֥י שָׁל֖וֹם לְכׇל־זַרְעָֽם׃
And the commanders of Qaṭan built roads and great cities in the land of Qaṭan until final victory. And all the matters of their power and strength and the portion of greatness of the Jews who the commanders greatened, are they not written in the Book of the Acts of the Settlers of Qaṭan? For the Jews of Qaṭan were beloved by the commanders of the game, and the Jews were great and desired by most of the armies, doing good for their people, and speaking peace to all their descendants.
