Abstract:

Appreciation of African games has increased in this country; especially board games which have been popularized through commercial versions. African games are invaluable resources for studying subjects requiring mathematical concepts, as well as social studies, history, geography, and languages. This manual presents some of the better known African games. It is arranged in four parts. Part 1, "Background to African Games," describes the three different categories of strategy games: games of alignment like Tic-Tac-Toe; struggle for territory games, covering African versions of checkers; and mankala, one of the oldest types of board game. Part 2, "Some African Games and How to Play Them," provides samples of African games. Brief comments about the games, the players, illustrations of playing equipment and detailed instructions, along with diagrams demonstrating moves and strategies are provided for each game. Part 3, "Supplementary Materials," provides ideas for making different types of board games. Also included are brief notes on the people and customs associated with the games, as well as a map of African countries. Part 4, "Bibliography," contains a partially annotated bibliography which includes references used and resource material. (Apg).
