State the name of your game and why you chose it.

We chose Kudoda because it would not be too hard to play..

List the countries where it is played and its origin.

This game, Kudoda, came from Africa.  A similar version in Simbabwe is played with stones or pebbles. 

Describe how your game is played. State the object of the game. Clearly describe the rules.

List the equipment needed.

Make recommendations for what type of athlete would enjoy playing this game. What skills does it demand?

Christina:  This game is best played by a person with fast moving hands so that they can pick up the marbles.  The person would need good hand/eye coordination.
