Yoté (pronounced "yotay") is a jazzy checkers type game from West Africa.
During your turn you may place a piece from your reserves in any empty position on the board, or move, or capture by jumping (moves and captures are orthogonal). When a capture is made the enemy piece is removed from the board AND an additional enemy piece anywhere on the board is removed.
Rules for Dara are also provided. Dara, which uses the same equipment as Yoté, is a row game from Nigeria that is similar to Nine Men's Morris.
How good is this game?
Yoté is challenging and fun, and has simple rules - all on a tight little board. It can be a fast-moving game that changes unpredictably.
