History of Badakinisio

Badakinisio was a popular game in Madagascar until it came to American in the early 1750s through the Columbian exchange. It was revered among the Madagascarians, and for centuries Americans have been able to bask in its glory. Once it came to America, it was originally a game played by Native Americans, especially the Choctaw and Caddo tribes, and eventually was passed down to American society. Now it can be found in Casinos across the country, due to Casinos and their Native American affiliations (Ex. Choctaw Casinos).
