The name Warri means ‘house’ in the Nigerian, Igbo language and is played with two persons on opposing teams, each person has 6 houses on their side with, initially 4 men in each house but as the game progresses the men are moved from house to house around the board in an anticlockwise direction, you are only allowed to make one play at a time from your side, one play being, moving all the men in one house and dropping them in the subsequent consecutive houses the object of the game is to capture 25 men. The men in a house can be captured if a house is weak. A house is weak when it contains 1 man or 2 men, then if your opponent was to play and their last man was to end in one of your weak houses it would be captured along with any consecutive weak houses behind that one. You cannot capture more than one weak house if they are not one after the other, for example if there was a strong house, meaning a house with 3 or more men behind it you would not be able to eat it; and you also cannot eat multiple houses if the chain is broken by an empty house because an empty house is just that, an empty house. These are the rules by which we in Barbados play by; however, the rules vary slightly internationally.
