Description

Yoté is a game with leaping captures played in Senegal. It is typically played in the sand with one side playing with stones or shells and the other with sticks. In it, a player making a capture is allowed to choose another of the opponent's pieces to remove from the board.

Rules

5x5 board. Twelve pieces per player. Players alternate turns placing a piece on the board or moving a piece already on the board. Pieces move one space in any orthogonal direction. A player may capture an opponent's piece by hopping over it to an empty space on the other side of it. When a capture is made in this fashion, the player chooses another piece belonging to the opponent to capture in addition. The player who captures all of the opponent's pieces wins.

Béart 1955: 462-464.
