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 is great for children, enhancing both maths and strategy skills.
These Oware Tables are hand-made in Ghana using Ofram hardwood. They are robust and elegant tables with a stand that has been carved into the shape of an elephant.
A great talking point for your home, the table comes with real Bonduc seeds and a rules sheet.
The game is hand-made by a Ghanaian craftsman. It is has a beauty of its own that is typical of the region but as with all hand-made products, there may be minor imperfections and patterns may vary.
NOTE: Not suitable for children under 5 years old due to small components that represent a choking hazard.
