Drive your bull home with this exciting game! These traditional rules are borrowed from Sudan. Crayola® Model Magic® and fun are today's favorites!
Dala is played by the Bagara people of the Sudan, where bull herding is part of everyday life. Sudan is a country located on the African continent between Egypt and Eritrea. It borders the Red Sea.
Kids around the world create games with the materials they have handy. Dala can be played on paper, although in Sudan it is traditionally played in the dirt with sticks. Dala is played by two people. Each player starts with 12 game pieces.
To create your game pieces, divide a large handful of white Crayola® Model Magic® into 12 equal parts. Shape all 12 in a similar way, such as circles, square, or thumbprints. Players should choose two different shapes.

The other player, after making a bull on the board, teases the opponent by saying "tsp, tsp, tsp" the noise a herder makes leading a bull home. A player wins when all but two of the opponent's pieces have been taken.
