Presented in an oversized board book of removable, two-sided game boards, this international collection gathers enduring games from all over the globe: Barricade from Germany; the 1500-year-old Viking game Tablut; the game of Yoté from Mali and Senegal; Li'b el Merafib (the Hyena Game) from Sudan; the ancient Mexican game of Patolli; Zohn Ahl from the North American Kiowa tribe; Dou Shou Qi (Jungle Chess) from China; Diviyan Keliya (the Leopard Game) from Sri Lanka and India; Mu Torere from New Zealand; and Surakarta from Java. Designer Àngels Navarro gives each board an authentic look based on its original culture—many resemble wooden slabs that have been carefully painted or stained—with facts about the game, its origin, and its history. Playing pieces are provided, and the rules and instructions for each game includes tips and tricks to help you get the most out of it.
