Deluxe Wood Mancala Game
Participate in one of the most ancient of board games, a classic capture game that crosses lands, oceans and cultures- the Deluxe Wood Mancala game set. Featuring a wooden board, each player is responsible for the 6 pockets on their side of the board, as well as the longer Mancala pocket to their right. Each player begins with 4 beads in each of the 6 pockets on their side of the board. One player then takes all beads from one of their pockets and places one in each pocket going counter clockwise, including their own "Mancala" pocket, but skipping their opponent's Mancala pocket. If the last bead placed lands in your own "Mancala" you get another turn. If the last bead placed lands in an empty pocket on your side of the board, you get to take that bead as well as all beads in your opponent's pocket that is directly opposite. The game is over when all 6 pockets on one side of the board are empty. Any remaining beads left in pockets on the board go to that opponent and whoever has the most beads wins! While there are many variations to this game depending on which culture you are in, all are sure to be fun! Board measures 17.5" x 5.25" x .75". Fun for 2 players.
