Rules 5x6 board. Each player has twelve pieces. Players alternate placing their pieces until they are all placed on the board. The goal is to make a line of three, which allows the player to capture one of the opponent's pieces. Once the pieces are all on the board, they may be moved one space orthogonally. In the case that a move creates two lines of three, only one capture is made. The player who makes the last possible capture wins.
Content "Il se rencontre également chez les Baribas du Nord-Dahomey, sous le nom de taurou-tauru-ou de tabourou-taburu-,et de wali chez les Denis et les Bariba. Heu d'hommes adultes, mais de plus en plus joué par les jeunes, la contrainte sociale de relâchant. Il aurait même été jeu de princes, réservé aux Ouassangaris-wasangari-, futurs rois. Il n'est pas chez les Baribas jeu d'argent. Variante curieuse, et qui fait penser aux échecs: le gagnant n'est pas celui quià gagné le plus gran nombre de pions, mais celui qui aura gagné le dernier coup." Béart 1955: 456.
