Oware is a strategic board game, which can often be as intense and involved as a long game of Chess. Throughout a game of Oware, strategic thinking and playing, such as predicting an opponents moves, can lead to a thrilling victory. Even though the rules of the game seem simple, and there are only a few of them, Oware is very strategic. At first, the outcome of the game will seem to be based on luck, but as you gain experience, you will be able to plan your moves more carefully, and further in advance. Veteran players can even plan their moves all the way to the end of the game. Of course, this takes a lot of practice, and won't be true for everyone.
