Two men with traditional garb and hairstyle concentrate on their igisoro game, one of a family of board games generally known as “mancala.”  Mancala-type games are played around the world and date back thousands of years.  In Rwanda, igisoro is played on this carved wooden board (the igisoro) with 4 rows of 8 indentations (the icúba) and 64 seeds that represent cows (the inka). The object of the game is to capture each other’s cows.  Some masters of the game play it blindfolded or play multiple games at the same time.
