Strategic game with a surprising end.
Originally played by the royalty of Madagascar, Fanorona was a pass time for the wealthy. It still holds up today as an extremely strategic game for two players.
22 white balls & 22 black balls set on the board as in the picture.
For each turn, a player moves one of their balls to an unoccupied space. When a ball runs into or moves away from a line of the opponent's balls they are removed from play. The player who has the last remaining balls on the board is the winner.
You will have to find a tactical way to capture the last balls on the board.
