Mancala, the centuries old game of collecting gemstones, is one of the world’s oldest board games.

It is sometimes called "sowing" games, or "count-and-capture" games, which describes the game-play. Mancala games play a role in many African and some Asian societies comparable to that of chess in the West, or the game of Go in Eastern Asia.

Except for sowing games,count and capture, this old board game also has many other names, such as kalah,oware,endodoi,awale and wari.

In this game, players begin by placing a certain number of seeds in each of the pits on the game board. Players take turns to sow. In the process of sowing, all the seeds from a hole are dropped one-by-one into subsequent holes in a motion wrapping around the board. When one player no longer has any seed in his holes, the game ends. The player with the most seeds in designated hole wins the game.

I love this game!

ozma and polly

The sounds are perfect, the difficulty was a little much for me at first, because I had not played for years, but I was able to overcome the easiest level pretty quickly with just a little patience. Also, I really like the ability to play with 3, 4, 5, or 6 seeds as you are able and accustomed. For those who are not aware of that, looking at the options page will clarify. I enjoy exploring all the buttons and tabs of things, so I found it easily. The only problem is that it crashes when searching for nearby devices. Overall, great app, I highly recommend.

Good game but crashes


Mancala is a great, strategic game. However; this app is far from great. The game usually crashes when you search for a nearby opponent, and after you beat the tar out of the computer. The computer isn't as challenging either. It's best to play Mancala with a friend, with real pebbles, and real moves. Still descent though. 😕

Moves too fast


Not the best mancala game on the App Store, because it uses 3 beads instead of the standard 4, and the computer moves so quickly, you don't know how the move occured. After your move, the game board changes instantly and you don't know how your beads were captured. These should be easy fixes.
