Heritage of Strategy

Embark on a journey through time with Fanorona, the revered 'Checkers of Madagascar.' Etched into the cliffs of Antananarivo since the 16th century, this strategic board game is a national treasure. The aim is simple yet profound – capture all your opponent's pieces to claim victory. But true mastery is marked not just by winning, but by overcoming a unique handicap in subsequent matches. As the game progresses, the victor faces greater challenges, ensuring a battle of wits that is endlessly engaging and historically rich.

Tactical Elegance

A game of sharp minds and swift victories, hails from the rich culture of Madagascar. Known as 'Las damas de Madagascar,' this game is more than a pastime; it's a link to a storied past, with boards carved into hillsides dating back centuries. Winning means outmanoeuvring your opponent to immobilise or eliminate all their pieces. The twist? Victory brings a greater challenge in the next round, where the previous victor plays with a strategic disadvantage, turning El Fanorona into a never-ending dance of strategy and anticipation.

Elegance Meets Excitement

It is a game of quick thinking and quicker moves, now graces your collection. Our artisans have transformed this traditional Malagasy strategy game into a work of art. The sleek, wooden board and intricately designed pieces not only serve the thrill of the chase but also stand as a testament to masterful craftsmanship. This isn't just a board game; it's an encounter with history, a fast-paced duel where only the sharpest strategist can triumph.

We liked our Woodas so much that we wanted others to enjoy them too. So we put them in our vacation home. It didn’t take long before they were stolen. Guess others appreciated them too!

Cosy and enjoyable product! Visit mokuomo during the christmas season and pick up a brand-new moku towel. It was a total blast, and we had a lot of laugh with it. I'd recommend it to everyone who loves fun and eco - friendly materials and product:)
