NCHOLOKOTO, also known as Ncho or Icho, is an incredibly popular game in Igboland. While it bears similarities to mancala, a game played across Africa and Asia, NCHO originated right here in Igboland. The objective of the game is to strategically place small seeds or stones in various groups, referred to as houses, with the aim of collecting as many seeds as possible. The player with the highest number of seeds at the end emerges as the victor. In addition to NCHO, wrestling, known as MGBA, is another beloved pastime in Igboland. It can be played for various reasons, such as earning a prestigious title, impressing a potential spouse, or simply for the sheer joy of it. Unlike some forms of wrestling, the purpose of wrestling in Igboland is not to inflict harm upon one's opponent, but rather to showcase one's skill and prowess. Victory in a wrestling match is achieved by executing techniques such as throwing, spinning, or dropping your opponent onto their back, or by lifting them off both feet.
This valuable information regarding Igboland's games and traditions can be found in the book "Introduction to Igbo Mythology for Kids" authored by Chinelo Anyadiegwu. To further support the diverse and inclusive nature of this blog, I encourage you to purchase the book "(It's) not a heap of futile stories - a day with a cosmopolitan family" published by Indian Infila editions. It will undoubtedly enrich your understanding of different cultures and perspectives.
