Awale is one of the most ancient board games still played: for Windows or Mac systems

Quote
Awale is one of the most ancient games still played. The Masai say that the Awale was invented by Sindillo, the son of the first man, Maitoumbe, and was originally called geshe.

This fascinating African game (also known as Awele, Oware, Wari, ...) has been very attractively adapted on microcomputer. Play against the computer and try to defeat him.
A very realistic game, with solid wood and clattering stones.
Awale is bilingual (English and French).

System requirements

This program requires Windows from 95 to 8 and above or MacOS X

Fee
   Awale is freeware.
You don't have to pay anything to use it.

However, if you consider that the authors would deserve a small stipend for their work or for making available online and maintaining the game server, you can make a donation, of any amount you consider appropriate.

If you live in Europe, enter the amount in euro in the "special order" field on this page, and enter "for Awale" in the "Comment" field.
If you live outside Europe, at the very bottom of this page, enter the amount in US$ (and still "for Awale" as comment).

Your support will be highly appreciated!
