Shisima is a two-player game from Kenya, one of many 3-in-a-row games from around the world, such as Tic-Tac-Toe, Tapatan, Three Men's Morris, Nine Holes, Achi, Tant Fant, and Dara. The octagonal board is what makes Shisima unique. Each player's three pieces face off on opposite edges of the octagon, and by means of clever movement, a row of three is accomplished. Obviously, this must use the center space, which makes it a precious possession. The trick is to make moves to force the opponent off that space at just the right time. Made in USA for ages 6+.
