Oware Board Game


Oware is an abstract strategy game of Akan origin.Part of the mancala family, it is played throughout West Africa and the Caribbean. Among its many names are Ayò (Yoruba), Awalé (Côte d’Ivoir), Wari (Mali), Ouri, Ouril or Uril (Cape Verde), Warri (Caribbean) and Awélé (Ga). Practically everyone knows how to play it. It is, to the best of my knowledge, the most arithmetical game with a mass following anywhere in the world. Included with the gameboard: 52 seeds and a rule book.
16″ long X 2.5″ Wide closed. Made in Ghana.
