Oh-Wah-Ree is a 1962 board game designed by Alex Randolph and published by 3M as part of their bookshelf game line. A variant of mancala, the game is playable by between 2 and 4 players. The name is taken from Oware, a typical West African game.
A characteristic feature (besides the circular formation of the holes, which has no playing implications) is the use of a second ring of holes to mark the ownership of the holes by the various players. This allows for more than two players, and for modes of play in which the players capture holes as well as the stones in them.
