To be victorious in Zulu Chess, one must be cunning and skilled at positioning and moving his/her tokens (known as cows) to capture an opponent’s tokens while defending against counter-attacks. In order to do this, each player must devise a strategy, react to his opponent's strategy, and, like international chess, be able to see several moves ahead. Moreover, playing the game on a regular basis helps develop those mental skills (memory, foresight, hindsight, strategy, planning, calculation, prediction, etc.) which are highly desirable for solving other problems we face in the real physical world. This game is as easy to learn as tic-tac-toe; but, having a much greater complexity, requires concentration and extensive practice to be victorious over a competent opponent. Great oaks from little acorns grow, and in time, even a novice player can acquire the skills of a master herdsman. Playing the game of umlabalaba will enable players of all ages to activate dormant mental processes and sharpen the mind.
