African Yote Game

Yote is a popular game from Africa particularly in countries such as Mali and Senegal. Its a traditional game very much like checkers and part of its popularity is its fast moving nature. Yote has a board made up of six columns and five rows with twelve pieces per player which are laid out across the board by the two players at random ~ but game play starts the moment a piece is laid rather than waiting for all the pieces to be displayed. Just like checkers, pieces can be captured from your opponent by leaping over them. For more about how to play Yote, check out the video below.
