Ouré Ngat (Oure Ngat, Uré Ngat)




Western Africa


Ouré Ngat is a two-row mancala-style board game played in Senegal during the early twentieth century. It is not typically played on a board; instead, the counters are arranged in heaps on the ground.


Two rows of four piles. Six counters in each pile. A player picks up the counters in one of her piles and sows them anti-clockwise, beginning in the place from which she picked up the counters. Any piles containing 2, 4, or 6 counters at the end of sowing are captured. The player who captures the most counters wins.

Béart 1955: 511.
