My board, from Cameroon. On this board players would sit left and right. The pieces are seeds. I have an Android implementation of this ancient game. The link will download and offer to install it. Because it is not (yet) on the Play Store, you will have to enable ‘unapproved’ software installations. Owari is a bead game played all across Africa. It has many spellings, more common variants being Awale, and Warri.
