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.

Game of the century.

I love moving M&M shaped marbles through a wood board with half drilled holes while trying to score a touchdown. It’s like call of duty meets football if Hulk Hogan was a professional bowling champion if the lanes were made of Ice for free skating in the dark. The best part about Mancala is that it brings back old memories of going to grandmas and getting yelled at for being hyper while throwing the marbles around the room. We definitely had fun those summers going to the lake and Mancala was always there. I definitely see myself playing with this instead of my organ. I have made a professional chance at Mancala only to be off a few marbles but this will help me train for the future.

그래도 최애 게임입니다 ,


I love Mancala and I am glad that I can play it easily on an app like this. However, there are a few things that I wish were changed or updated.
First, the single player modes are too limited. The AI has a very predictable pattern, and there is only one level open to users who didn’t pay. If at least a few more levels become available, users may not only be more attracted to the game, but also be convinced that spending money on this game could be worth it. Right now, I am not interested in spending money on this app because I’m not sure if the payed-version-AI will be significantly different.
Second, there is no other method to gain diamonds other than spending real money. In most games, there are other methods to gain game money other than spending actual money, such as watching ads, completing tasks, etc., which are some things I was expecting to see. I am not good at Mancala so sometimes I just need to spend diamonds to get hints when solving puzzles, but after I spent them on 2-3 hints I was stuck at a certain level because I ran out. I’m new to this app so I don’t want to spend money on it already. I think that it is important for a game to keep the users engaged until they start to really get into it and consider spending money on it.
These are personal opinions so idk if a lot of people will agree on them, but I thought that it may be helpful if I write an honest review from a newbie’s pov. The game itself is well organized the gameplay is enjoyable!

Good for first time

I had never played this game before and I had this game as a kid but it was a wooden box that you open up and played right there on the board. It came with marbles and it did not have directions well we did not have internet when I was a kid so I never learned to play it. I have been playing it to the point I think I am addicted lol! Maybe not addicted but I am really enjoying it. I think that the directions could have been a little more detailed maybe a step by step and maybe have a tutorial that shows how to play in just a easier way to play the game. The reason I say that is that I suffered a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and it takes a bit more of detailed instructions to for me to learn how to play certain games. It took me playing for about an hour to finally understand the game. I would definitely recommend it to others and it is a good game for brain training in my opinion !!! -Krysten
