Product Description

Fanoroma is a 2 person strategy board game which originated in Madagascar.  This version uses high quality wood pegs and comes with floorboard base and wood cover.  Made in the USA by Creative Crafthouse using both conventional woodworking tools as well as laser machines.

The game dates to 1680 and originated in Madagascar.  Fanorona was a popular pastime, and was also used for divination purposes. When the French were invading the island in 1895, the reigning queen Ranavalona III is said to have put more faith in the outcome of a ritual game of Fanorona than in the strength of her armed forces.

Knowledge of the game spread more widely in the middle of the twentieth century, when it was featured in a number of popular books about games. In modern times, it was embedded as an activity in the video adventure game Assassin's Creed III, making it popular among a new generation of gamers.

Comes with detailed rules.  The objective is to "capture" all of your opponent's pieces.
