Bognor board game champion seeks competitor
An appeal has been launched to find a competitor to play against a board game champion.
George Doughty is a regular visitor at the new look Grandad’s Front Room, West Street, Bognor, which offers a community meeting place run by Danny Dawes.
Danny said: “George has won numerous chess and draughts championships but Oware – a game prominently played in Africa – is his real passion, he just needs people to play against.”
The game features a wooden board and seeds, it is divided in half known as the ‘land’ for each player.
With a sequence of moves the seeds must then be sown and harvested, the winner is the one who collects the most.
There is a list on the wall of the West Street premises which details when George is available to play and teach the game.
