On my way to visit a young friend near the headquarters of AEE Rwanda, I saw some people playing a board game.  It was played with seeds on a board with 32 pits in 4 rows.  Each player seemed to own 2 rows.  There were some seeds in some of the pits.  A player picked up the seeds in one of the pits, and started placing them, one by one, in the other pits, in sequence. I couldn’t stay long enough to figure out the rest.  

Later I found out it is called Igisoro.

Hi Stephen --

In Malaysia and neighboring territories, there's a similar looking game called congkak... ;)

That's interesting. It is so far away. Can you play?
