The game has been played in St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Martinique, Dopminica, Suriname and Jamaica. There are also warri tournaments in Barbados but Antigua and Barbuda , with its legions of warri enthusisasts and a vibrant National Warri Association may well be regarded as the last bastion of warri in the region.
