Does anyone know anything about the Sudanese game Bolotoudou? Is it just a
version of Nine Men's Morris? If so are there theories about how it got to
Sudan and when? And why did Caillois' English translator think it was
analogous to tipcat? Is "Moulin" a French version of tipcat or of Merelles?

Thanks for any help.
