Description (by ImagiSOFT)

Like chess in Europe, Wari (also known as Mancala and Ourri) is Africas foremost strategy game. It was popular 4,000 years ago with the pharaohs of Egypt and until recently, was restricted to African royalty. This two-player strategy game is deceptively easy to learn, but may take a lifetime to master.

Play another person or against one of the computers three skill levels. Waris beautiful graphics, animation, background music and sound clips greatly add to the enjoyment in playing this game. The animated tutorial will teach you the rules and winning strategies.
