Wöré (Wore, Weuré)




Western Africa


Board, Sow, Two rows.


Wöré was observed in the early twentieth century in St. Louis, Senegal. It was considered a game for women, and in some families it is forbidden for young girls and uncircumcised boys to play it.


Counters are placed in piles: two rows of four piles. Six counters in each pile. A player sows from any of the piles in the player's row in an anti-clockwise direction. Any pile which contains 2, 4, or 6 counters is captured. The player with the most counters captured wins.

Béart 1955: 512.


West Africa.
