Masters Traditional Games has gone to great lengths to obtain genuine Oware boards from West Africa. It is easy to buy Chinese-manufactured boards but why do that when you can have the real thing?

Mancala is the classic game of Africa that could well be the oldest board game in the world. There are hundreds of versions of the game throughout Asia and Africa but Oware from West Africa and the Caribbean is the best known. It is also the version of Mancala usually played at competition level; however, it is simple to learn and great for children- enhancing both maths and strategy skills.

These straightforward boards are hand-made in Ghana from a hardwood of the Mahogany family but do not have storage holes for the captured seeds. You can choose a board with either a Gye Nyame symbol carved into the top which is the Adinkra symbolizing the omnipotence and immortality of God. The Akoben symbol, the Adinkra symbol for a war horn or the Sankofen which symbolizes taking from the past what is good and bringing it into the present in order to make positive progress.

Includes real Bonduc seeds and a rules sheet. If you want to play Mancala the proper way, then this is your chance!

Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
