Waju

Waju or whatever is called is a game that until this day I don’t know from where it comes. But, is fun.

Edit: The game is based on a German game called Mensch ärgere Dich nicht

Goal

The goal of the game is very simple:

  1. Move your marbles for one lap from your home to your goal.
  2. Don’t worry about winning but don’t let anyone else win.
  3. Have fun.

Board

Waju

The board has six main components:

Dice

Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Home

This is the waiting point and one of the most infuriating places you can be in the game, it’s also the place where you start.

Start

The starting point of your home is always located in the first spot to the right of your home.

In the picture above is the spot that has the same colour as the home or marbles in this case.

Road

This is where the battle happens.

Void

I’ve seen people staying here for months!!

The void is a shortcut you can take only from your starting point or your corner and only if you roll a 5 or 1 respectively.

Once in the void, you can only move back to the road by rolling a 1 and only a 1 to your corner to the right.
