SE Branch library invited us to participate in their event celebrating music from Kenya.  We found a new strategy game two player strategy game called Shisima that is related to tic-tac-toe, that originates from Kenya.  Melissa Wilkinson cut and made the design that Stefany Espinoza created.  Quan Nguyen and Marianne Villanueva brought the game to SE Branch, participated in some drumming and other activities, and taught the game to participants.

Its pretty easy to make your own, but here’s a link to our CAD files including Corel, AI, SVG, EPS and PDF      A printable version with directions in English and Spanish by Stefany Espinoza is available here.
