Also known as Kalah, Awele, Oware, and Bao, Mancala is an ancient African board game, where 2 players play against each other in turn-based fashion, to see who collects more marbles or seeds.

Mancala has different variations. This is a summary of the rules of Mancala: Marbles & Seeds:

Each player, on his or her turn, chooses one of the 6 holes on his or her side and deals the stones throughout the board in an anticlockwise direction, leaving one stone in each hole and in the player's Mancala. If the last stone dealt ends up in the player's own Mancala, then the player gets a free turn. If the last stone dealt falls in an empty hole on the player's side of the board, this player captures all the stones in the opponent's parallel hole.

The game ends when one of the players does not have any more stones in the holes on his or her side of the board. When this happens, the stones that remain shall go to the other player's Mancala. The winner is the player with most stones.

Too many advertisements!


The advertisement pop ups are absolutely positively annoying! Happens waaaaay to often! Seriously could do without so many! PLEASE FIX THAT OR I'M DELETING THIS GAME! Other than that, absolutely love it! :)
