Ashanti Alignment Game DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Western Africa

Category Reconstruction, Board, Space, Line

Description

This alignment game, the name of which was not recorded, was played in the Ashanti Kingdom in the early nineteenth century. It was played on a wooden board with perforations, and the pieces were pegs to be inserted in the board.

Rules

The board is a series of intersecting lines in many directions, each line with three points. Players have equal numbers of pegs, and place their pieces at the same time. Players who place three of their pieces in a row remove one of the opponent's pieces. The player who removes all of the opponent's pieces wins.

These rules were taken from the Historical Information ruleset.
