Rules Cross-shaped board, with any number of squares in the arm with a central square, and a number of pieces per player equal to the number of spaces in two arms. Three squares in each arm with six pieces per player is common. Players alternate turns placing pieces on the board. Players may not place pieces in the central space. When the pieces are placed, players alternate turns hopping over an adjacent opponent's piece or an unbroken line of opponent's pieces with an empty space behind it. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.
Content "Le laram wali, ou wali des Maures, de Niafunké, et le padikoré des Soninkés et Diawara de Nioro, sont un tioki simplifié. Le damier a la forme d'une croix (fig. 326), avec une certain nombre de cases qui varie selon les endroits et un nombre de cailloux et de bâtonnets en rapport avec le nombre de cases. On ne se couche pas dans le case centrale, mais on peut y prendre. Il n'y a pas de cases supplementaires." Béart 1955: 461-462.
