SYNOPSIS

xawele or awelewish -f xawele

DESCRIPTION

The game of Awele is a popular african game, also known as "Sungo" or "Ubao". It is made of a wooden board with 12 holes containing some kind of stones. The aim is to capture as many stones as possible. There exist varieties of rules. I implemented the one I know, which is one of the most popular (in Ivory Coast at least).

xawele is a Tcl/Tk script, with some routines written in C. The interpreter is awelewish.

There is no command line options.

PLAYING

Select your opponent’s level using the "level" menu. Rules are explained in english (select rules in the "misc" menu) and in french (select regles). Button 1 on a non empty square plays this square; button 2 shows where the last stone is dropped if you choose this square. You have the possibility to undo one move.
