An ancient ancient game.  Made of 2 beautiful slabs of exotic hardwood (Raintree) with unusually deep pockets and features 3 heavy duty magnets to keep the board closed instead of the standard rope straps.   Playing pcs are attractive small diameter  marbles and we supply a few extras so you'll have some in case you lose any.  Board when closed measures about 17.5" x 5" x 1.9".

OMWESO and BAO and HUS: These are historical games of logic and skill related to Mancala, but with more options and complexity. Both games are played on the same 4x8 board. Omweso, sometimes shortened to Mweso, and also known as coro, is a version of mancala popular in Uganda. It is sometimes referred to as the national game of Uganda. For a complete analysis of the game, please refer to the following website: Omweso: http://www.geocities.com/omweso/ Bao (Tanzania) and Bawo (Malawi) are variations of Omweso. BAO rules are complex and can best be learned from the following website: http://www.gamecabinet.com/rules/Bao.html

We also supply simplified rules for HUS, which is South African in origin with simpler rules and can be applied to younger players.
