Mancala Playing Instructions
For 2 players
Age : 6-adult
Objective: Collect the most marbles by the end of the game.
Set-up: Place the gameboard between both players the long sides facing them. The 6 pockets in front of each player belong to them as their playing area. The large pocket on their right is the scoring area (the mancala). Place 4 stones in each of the 12 smaller pockets.
Playing The Game: One player starts the game by removing the stones from any of their own pockets and then places one in each pocket, starting with the next pocket to the right. Include your Mancala as a space as you place the stones in the pockets.
If there are enough stones to go past your Mancala, continue placing them into your opponent's pockets. However, skip their Mancala when placing stones.
If your last stone ends up in your Mancala, you get to take another turn.
If the last stone you place lands in an empty pocket on your side of the board, you get to take that stone plus all of your opponent's stones that are in the opposite pocket and place them in your own Mancala.
Winning the Game: The game ends when all six pockets on one side of the gameboard are empty. The other player takes the remaining stones in their pockets and places them in their Mancala. The winner is the player who has the most stones in their Mancala.
Beginner's Version: Play Mancala by starting out with just 3 stones in each pocket.
