Card games in Mali
Agram is played with 31-card pack, made from an international 52-card pack from which the cards 2 to 6 and the Ace of Spades have been removed. Five tricks are played and the object is to win the last trick.
Thierry Depaulis has found the following names of card games from Mali in a recent Bambara-French dictionary (Gérard Dumestre, Dictionnaire bambara-français, Paris, 2011, partly online), unfortunately with little or no explanation of the rules:
cὲmari (also known as 32), fàli n’à bínaakε, kàra, màrasi, mùsomari (version of War), nàfòlòbàcε (women's and children's game), símànsí (similar to 32), sí-tε-dà-sí-kàn (in which players never follow suit), súrukunin.
