Only a game?

14 October 2010 by Alison Cornmell

Are you bored of chasing Professor Plum or have you had to buy yourself out of jail one too many times?

If you have maybe you’ll enjoy playing a Banyan Wari Game this Saturday 16 October at the International Slavery Museum as part of the Black History Month programme.

Between 11.30 – 12.30 pm and 1.30 – 2.30pm visitors can play an ancient and modern number, thinking, and strategy game. Through forced migration, enslaved Africans took Wari to the Americas. It is played in the USA and some Caribbean countries especially Antigua, Barbuda and Barbados.

If you want to know more come along and learn how to play Wari. To book your free place please e-mail or call 0151 478 4543
