Mancala is one of the world's most popular and traditional board games, where strategy is your ally. Get as many marbles as you can to win in this exciting game.

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.

Great game

Great game, more difficult than most. I hate the ads and the fact that the x in the corner only leads you to the App Store- very annoying!

If you’re looking for a sign, This Is It - 10/10

MINIMAL ADs compared to a lot of free games on here - only one between each game. Cute theme options!! Simple - and the design provokes a nostalgia of a childhood spent playing games on a computer in the late 90s - early 2000s. .
Anyw a y s ummmmm

(But maybe an online multi player option?? It’s be nice)

More challenging than most

Cute game & nice graphics. Most AI players are not as difficult as this one so that is nice. Would love to see a choice of less or more stones. Just having the four loses motivation after a little bit, thanks! :)
