Details

Within a semicircular folding board crafted from beautiful coast redwood, this traveling oware game from Ghana is created by Patience Afi Vodi. This traditional game folds open to reveal beads of recycled plastic. The image of village huts are etched by hand into the folding board's exterior.

Oware is a game of skill and strategy designed for two players, challenging mental agility and alertness. The objective can be briefly described as "counting and capturing beads" and there are no chance factors involved. A player's strategy entirely depends upon reasoning and counting abilities.

Bought as a gift for my son who loved different kinds of games. When he was growing up we had a game like this with marbles and a simple wood tray. He loves this! Quality is the absolute best. Novica is my favorite go to place to shop for gifts.....and myself.
