Product Description

Schylling's line of Panda's Picks Eco-Friendly Games are made from bamboo, the ultimate sustainable, 100% biodegradable material.

This is an attractive little version of the ancient game of Mancala. The object of Mancala is to accumulate the most pieces through a series of moves and captures. Two players sit facing each other with the board between them. The board consists of two rows of 6 small pits with a large pit at each end called a reservoir or scoring pit. The small pits hold the pieces to be played and the reservoirs hold the captured pieces.This Mancala board folds out to measure about 12 1/2" x 3 3/4" and comes with all natural stones as playing pieces.

Please note: Instructions for Mancala are not included, but can be easily obtained online or byCLICKING HERE.

Easy to learn and usually a quick game to play.
E. Kennedy
My biggest problem is that the holes are too small to fit all the stones, depending on which version of the game you are playing.

This is a fun, simple game that my seven-year-old likes to play for hours with friends (and sometimes mom :). My biggest problem is that the holes are too small to fit all the stones, depending on which version of the game you are playing. Maybe that's the trade-off for a travel-sized version of the original. But the bamboo and the smooth stones are appealing and the price is right!

I got several of these for my first grade students. The boards are nice in that they come with a carry bag, and have nice deep holes, however, the whole scale of the board is just too small. I found some mancala boards at Target for $5 that were bigger and that they like better. Also, I had to replace the stones that come with it with some smaller glass gems. They just don't fit into the cups.

My daughter loves this game, so I bought her this one as a gift. I was surprised to see just how small it is compared to the ones we were used to. When playing Mancala you need big cups to get your hand into for easily scooping the stones out. These cups are so tiny that they don't hold large stone piles well, and they are annoying for adults to use. So the game becomes more of a nuisance than fun. I recommend finding something a little larger instead of this product unless going tiny is your goal.

I failed to read the size of this game before purchasing. I expected it to be larger. Its too small for an adult to play comfortably. later.

I purchase this game for my daughter who is in second grade and she loves it. I find it a bit small and so does she.

My daughter loves this game...the game itself is nice, the bamboo looks great. The only problem my 8yr. old daughter has is that the game itself is small & all the rocks don't fit in the slots. But other than being too small for her she still enjoys playing with it.
