Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Mancala – a part of the “Cultural Classics Collection” is an all-time favorite, possibly even the “Oldest Game in the World”. Extraordinary claim but versions date back to 7000 B.C. Often referred to as, “The National Game of Africa”, this game can be played anywhere. Our version is crafte from solid wood as we wanted to capture the simplicity of design and beauty of the original boards while integrating the regional craftsmanship of the indigenous people. Each game includes: solid wood playing board – pictured on the board are the Ancient African Petroglyphs of the Tenere Desert, located in the middle of the Sahara. The “herd” pictured includes Elephants, Gazelle, Rhinoceros and other native species. 48 African trading beads - there are four different styles of beads (12 each) included in this set. The original trading beads were used as currency on trade routes all over Africa. Solid Wood hinges and closure. Mancala history booklet/rule book. For 2 Players or Teams ages 8 and up.

Product Description

This edition of Mancala, which is a part of the Cultural Classics line of historic games, is one of the finest iterations available and is perfect for gift-giving or coffee table display. It combines the rich history of rustic African petroglyphs with the beauty of African 'trading beads.' Whether for play or display, this is a timeless Mancala set for the ages.Mancala is a timeless two-player game that has evolved from countless versions played for centuries, all over the world. The earliest versions were played with seeds on the ground, in small burrows scooped from the earth by hand. Stone carvings and tomb paintings, known as petroglyphs, are scattered throughout Africa and Asia, depicting the earliest versions of Mancala being played in various social settings. Reflecting traditional African values, players encouraged participation by onlookers making it perhaps the most social two-player game around. Maybe most importantly, the game and its many variations also played an important role in teaching arithmetic to African children.For 2 players, ages 8 and up.Contents Include: 1 hardwood board with replicated petroglyphs and unique wooden hinges, playing pieces modeled after African trading beads in four different styles and instructions.

This "Original" Mancala game is more beautiful than the picture.
You can use the original peices that are included or buy a bag of marbles. Either way, this is the funnest board game and very addicting. My next game purchased will be Chinese Checkers. Hopefully, I will be able to find it through this seller.

My granddaughter is eight and learned to play Mancala at school. She asked if she could have her own game at home/ She loves the stones that come with this set. They are African and intersting and not alll the same.

Even young players can play this game and there is enough strategy to keep adult math wizards challenged. Beautiful wood too!

Pretty neat, cannot hardly close it with beads in it though, but other than that It is perfect. Deeper holes than normal boards I believe, and I love the darker look and beads.
