Hyena Chase


There is a family of games called “Hyena” played for generations by the Baggara Arabs of Sudan. There are variants of this race game from the “Hyena Chase” played by school children, to a sophisticated “Hyena” game played by adults which introduces luck tokens and can have a spiral of up to 80 or more spaces. We offer the simpler version, one of the few multi-player games with a winner who then becomes a turncoat and tries to keep anyone else from coming in second place.

This game can be played by 2-4 players ages 6 and up. One game of Hyena Chase takes about 20 Minutes to play.
