  1. May one be permitted to ask Bobbie, if in fact you are one of the Ancients who played this Ancient Game. As todate I had never heard speak of it?

  4. It's an African game...I think it may originally been played in the ground with small pits. I played it with my kids when they were young. This set was at our library.

  5. An uncommon game, played with beautifully polished pebbles and photographed with a nice dof, makes for an interesting post!

  6. Those little glass pebbles look like too much of a temptation for me, I bet they feel great in your fingertips.
