Awale is a very singular game: it is played with seeds which are moved on a wooden game board … because of this it is placed in a very specific category of games: sowing games.

Symbol of Africa, the quality of this game lies in its simple rules and strategy which enable fascinating matches in a short space of time. This is the reason this workshop addresses children as well as adults.
