Kente

Surround territory to win. But be careful. Every play helps out an enemy as well as yourself.
Kente is a game of alliances quickly made and quickly broken. With each play you must decide which of your two opponents to help. Since each piece has two colors, each play helps out two players. For this reason, games are often close, and a player who seems to have little chance can come from behind and win big.

Notes

  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
