Greetings:

I'm curious if anyone has any ideas about what sorts of games might 
be played out of doors in North Africa before 1600?

And i don't mean carrying the chessboard outside to play :-)

A few modern outdoor games would be bocce, croquet, horseshoes, 
shuffleboard, etc.

If no one know of North African games, how about Middle Eastern ones 
(other than the Central Asian game which name i forget in which the 
male participants ride wildly on horses batting a goat carcass 
around)?

Thanks for any pointers...

Anahita
