Eye catching and enjoyable traditional hand crafted Board Game for Children and Adults. This native Hawaiian Board Game would make an excellent and original gift idea.

Kōnane is a two-player abstract strategy board game from Hawaii. It was invented by the ancient Hawaiian Polynesians. The game begins with all the counters laid out on the board in an alternating pattern of black and white. Players then hop over one another's pieces capturing them similar to checkers.

The board game appears somewhat similar to draughts. Pieces hop over one another when capturing. However, the similarities end there. In Konane, both players' pieces are intermixed in an alternating pattern of black and white that covers the whole board.
