Description

Murray 3.4.4 Played on a board of 3x3 intersecting lines with diagonals. Each player has four (or three) pieces. They take turns placing the pieces on the intersections, attempting to make three in a row. If they are unsuccessful after all of the pieces are placed, they then take turns moving their piece one spot along one of the lines until someone makes three in a row. This game was played by Yoruba people in Nigeria, where it was called Akidada, and in Ghana. The board was traced into the sand, and the players used pieces which took the form of sticks made from palm palm leaves, one player using green sticks and the other using brown.
