Review:
Four unusual board games from faraway lands offer a mental workout. Mu Torere from New Zealand and Coyote & Chickens from Mexico are 2-player games that depend completely on strategy. But there's an element of chance in Hyena from the Sudan and Sadurangam from Sri Lanka because dice-like objects determine the moves in these games for 2-4 players. Each game is separately packed in a CD-style case for convenient storage or travel portability, and includes rules and a brief historical background about the game. Some stores may sell the games individually, as well as in four-packs.
