This page brought me back to my childhood. When I was a kid, we played a game that we called Kala(pronounced Kay lah) using a wooden board and beans. I knew it was vaguely from Africa, but I didn't know about the many variations of the game or the many beautiful designs of boards. The board we used when I was a kid is similar to the first picture on that page, but the biggest holes were in the middle instead of on the ends. I never was very good at that game, when I think about it.
