This authentic Mancala Oware game from Africa Heartwood Project consists of a deluxe hand-carved wood board and 48 grey/green tear seeds. The beautiful circular shape features designs of artistic masks and other deep-carved images on the exterior of the board, with additional mask carvings on the inside of the board. The mancala pot is in the center of the board. The board is the carrying case, so you don't need a bag - it is all self-contained - and features a carved handle for easy carrying. The Osese wood is given 12 pits, connected with 2 hinges, and stained on the inside and outside with dark wood dye. Purchased and imported using fair-trade practices from cultural artisans who are part of the non-profit Africa Heartwood Project network. Play this African game with an authentic African board! - About the Oware game: A wonderful, ancient board game that tests strategy and mathematical skill. Children in Africa have played this game for centuries, and adults spend hours and hours picking up and dropping stones into the board's 12 pits, socializing as they play. The game can be played non-strategically by young children not even able to count, so recommended age is 4+ (small parts not recommended for children under 4). As children learn basic arithmetic this game will improve their skill and train them to think before acting.
