Sierra Leone kids play Akra

After church today the kids were playing in the parking lot at Belliar Park. The game is called Akra (emphasis on "kra"). The leader is challenging the responding player. When the leader moves a foot forward, the other player must move the same foot forward in response. If the responding player gets it right two times in a row he becomes the leader. All the other foot movement is just deception to mislead the other player. Every time they match the foot movement they get ten points. First one to one hundred wins.


  1. Looks like it has as much to do with the feet as with the hands. What is the objective? Does anyone "win"?

  2. Where did it originate?
