|Sowing: Single laps|
Micro-Wari was invented by Assia Popova (a Bulgarian) and André Deledicq (a French) in 1977. This game is one of the smallest mancala games in existence.
Micro-Wari is played on a board of 2x2=4 holes. Initially there is one seed in each hole. A player "owns" the row of holes closest to him.
At his turn a player empties one of his holes and distributes its contents in an counterclockwise direction. After a single lap the move is finished.
A player captures the last seed he is distributing if it is dropped into an empty hole of the opponent.
When a player has no seeds to move at his turn the game is over and his opponent captures the remaining seeds.
The player who won most seeds is declared the winner.
