For the people of Madagascar this is their national game, and take it very seriously. This is the “Dimy” version of the game; the more common is played on a board twice as large. It appears to be a typical jump-and-capture game, but the capturing is done by “approach and withdraw” and can be won or lost very suddenly!
This game can be played by 2 players ages 6 and up. One game of Fanoran-Dimy takes about 20 Minutes to play.
