Description

Paradis is a race game played by boys, men, and married women in Mali. Players attempt to reach Paradise, in the center of the board, three times.

Rules

Nine concentric circles. Any number of players. Each player plays as one piece. Two nut shells, used as dice. The values are as follows: two round sides = 2; two hollow sides = 1; one of each side = 0. Players move their pieces from outside the circles into progressive rings until they reach Paradise at the center, at which point the piece goes back to the outside of the board. The first player to reach Paradise three times wins.
