Mancala (also known as Kalah) is an ancient board game. Pick up marbles from any of bottom holes and move them counter-clockwise. If your move ends at your home hole (right one) you can move again.

The game ends when all six holes on either side are empty. The winner is the player with the most marbles in home hole.

RE: Mancala

This is a good and fun game! I have only had it for 7 and 39 seconds (hey, who's counting? *wink*) minutes and its wonderful. Although, I do have one concern. first of all, the game provides hints for any time you feel that you need some help. What i dont like about this is that it tells you exactly where to go, so its kind of like cheating. This personally makes playing the game less fun. And also, i tested this by playing three games WITH the hints and WITHOUT the hints. Of course, using hints for the whole game won. I hope this review helped you out. Have a great morning, afternoon, or night.

Nice graphics

I like everything about this game. It’s very straightforward. The only confusing part is capturing your opponents pieces. If you’ve played that way before, ( I have), it’s no problem. For those who haven’t though, it’d be nice to have the option to capture or not. I do like that it has the option of putting a piece in your opponents bin or not. The background and the light-colored wood are even relaxing.

When In Tabula Raza Mode

Let’s face it, there are times when one just doesn’t want to think about anything. This game is great for calming one. I love to play it when trying to come up ith new ideas or deal with some puzzling or concerning situation. I use it as a kind of therapy (cheaper than a shrink). I’ve even done adaptations of it with a handful of rocks when not near a computer. Great fun.
