Kanga DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Middle Africa

Category Reconstruction, Pending, Board, Sow, Two rows


Kanga is a children's game played in the Republic of Congo.


A rectangle is drawn on the ground. The long sides of the rectangle have five holes each, and the short sides one hole each. There is a larger hole in the center. Each player has six counters. Each player owns the five holes on one long side and the hole on the short side to their right. Players distribute their counters on their side of the board as they see fit. Players capture holes from the other player. Any holes with a single counter on the player's side are vulnerable to capture.
