For many Ghanaians, the playing of games is a daily activity. By playing games often and usually at a high level of skill, Ghanaians participate in a process that is of great significance to their own culture. This paper is an exploration of the games culture, as it exists in Ghana. The category of game addressed in the investigation is indoor games. These games serve as a mode of stimulation, entertainment, and interaction for a large portion of Ghanaians, especially men. You, the reader, are about to enter a world of excitement, hierarchy, communalism, sexism, and intelligence.
