    Description

    GAMES of the WORLD has been Chris's pet project at Acorn Games for years. Acorn Games has always wanted to produce a game with a solid wood board and playing pieces that allow you to play a multitude of games. They have gathered together four classic games from around the world and have designed four of their own games that can all be played on a classic "Alquerque" board.

    They found some games which use 12 or less pieces of each color that can all be played on the same board. Next they set out to design a series of new games which use the same pieces and board but have either more modern moves or conditions of victory to make them appeal to today’s game players.

    The classic games that you will find in the book are;

    Alquerque("Alquerque" is a Checkers variant) from Spain
    Seega("Seega") from Africa and Egypt
    Cercar La Liebre(similar to "Catch the Hare") also from Spain
    Five Field Kono("Five Field Kono") from Korea

    The new games from Acorn Games in the book are;

    "Fortress", a "condition" game
    "Centaurs", a "replacement" game
    "Troop", another replacement game
    "Neutrino", another condition game

    In a "Replacement Game" the players are each trying to get from
    their starting point to where their opponent started out from.
    Sort of like in "Chinese Checkers"

    In a "Condition Game" the players
    are trying to be the first player to DO something. This may be to
    get something like getting 3-in-a-row as in TicTacToe but not
    mattering WHERE on the board you achieve this.

    Solid wood construction and pieces as well as a clearly written rule book with diagrams make this a sure bet with teachers and game players alike.

    Not described but playable with the included board of the board game collection as well: "Bagh Bandi", Bagh Chal from Nepal, and Fanorona Dimy (a Fanorona variant on a five times five board) from Madagascar. Rules available in BoardGames.
