Traditional Africa Games
Africa games, especially board games, have been in existence for thousands of years, and many of the games were unearthed by archaeologists, although rarely were there accompanying instructions. Some of these Africa games have been captured in paintings such as one found in the tomb of Queen Nefertari showing her playing Senet, possibly the world's oldest board game. Morabaraba is another of the popular Africa games with 12 Mens Morris being its closest modern day equivalent. The game of checkers finds its roots in the ancient north Africa game of Zamma, whilst a version called Fanorona has long held popularity in Madagascar. Other popular traditional Africa games include Tsoro Yematatu a two player strategy game, Butterfly from Mozambique and Seega which is believed to have come from Egypt in the early nineteenth century.
