Àyó Game


Ayo, also known as Mancala or Oware. Ayo is a traditional African board game played with a wooden board and seeds or stones. The objective of the game is to capture the most seeds or stones from your opponent’s side.

Here are the basic rules:

  1. Setup: Place the Ayo board horizontally between you and your opponent. Each player controls the six cups on their side of the board, filled with four seeds or stones in each cup.
  2. Starting Player: Decide who goes first. This can be done by flipping a coin or any other agreed-upon method.
  3. Gameplay: The player starts by selecting one of their cups and distributing its seeds or stones counterclockwise, placing one seed or stone in each subsequent cup, including their own scoring cup but not the opponent’s scoring cup.
  4. Capturing: If the last seed or stone you drop lands in your scoring cup, you get another turn. If the last seed or stone lands in an empty cup on your side, and the cup opposite to it on your opponent’s side has seeds or stones in it, you capture all the seeds or stones in both cups and place them in your scoring cup.
  5. Ending the Game: The game ends when one side of the board is empty. The remaining seeds or stones on each side are captured by the respective player. The player with the most captured seeds or stones wins.
