Product Description

Easy to learn, simple to play and a challenge for strategists. The game mechanics are immediately obvious. However, mastery will take a lot of thinking.

The goal of the game is it to bring one of your pieces containing at least one pearl to your opponent's baseline.

If you're not careful, you'll lose your beads and thus lose mobility of your pieces.

The beautiful wooden pieces of Malawi accentuate this fascinating game for two, which you'll play again and again.
