Mancala is a classic two player game involving moving beads around the board and into scoring pits for points. There are many variations to the game that can be played, but they are all fun and easy to learn! The Mancala board itself is made of nice solid wood and the gems are polished and vibrant. This game seems really simple but there are elements of counting, math, tactics, and strategy that are stimulating for children and adults alike. The easy portability and simple play make it a solid addition to your game library.
