|Variant of oware|
|6 holes per row|
Cross-wari was invented by the American W. Dan Troyka in May of 2001 while he was living in Boston, Massachusetts, shortly before he moved to Saline, Michigan. Dan Troyka is the current Camelot Champion of the World.
The rules are almost identical with oware as played in Ghana (Abapa rules).
- The most challenging Cross-Wari variant starts with six beans in each hole. It is also permitted to begin with three, four or five beans per hole.
- Holes with an odd number of beans are sown clockwise, whereas holes with an even number continue to be sown counterclockwise.
- The beans remaining in play when the game is terminated are not counted.
