When we visited Africa a decade ago, we saw mancala playing in restaurants, on street benches, everywhere. We stocked it as an unusual multicultural "niche" game. Then the math teachers of America discovered it and wow! from six to 96 everyone's playing this gemstone collecting game. Here is our best selling edition that features a beautifully crafted rubberwood board that folds in half and locks in place. Included is a very good instruction sheet with play variations, important for adults who are trying to catch up to the kids. Distributed by John Hansen for 2 players, ages 6-99.
