Description Edit | History

Challenge your mathematical genius with Oware, the original Mancala game from the Akan peoples of Ghana. Unlike fighting-based strategy games, Oware is not about knocking out your opponent or preventing them from playing. In fact, taking a turn that would prevent your opponent from playing forfeits all your profits. Instead, plan strategies that gain you the most stones and leave as little as possible for your opponent.

The ability to think strategically, and plan as many moves ahead as possible is essential to win this abstract, seed-sowing game!

Oware comes with:
Suede leather board with satin draw-string cord, attached rule book, and 48 marble playing pieces of assorted colors.
