As a teacher this ancient game teaches not only math but culture. This game has been around in Asia and Africa for thousands of years and has many cultural aspects to go along with it such as in some places men only play with men and women only play with women. My students find this very interesting.
My students also enjoy playing with the beads and separating them into categories.

We purchased this exact version of Mancala a few years ago and still love to play with it. My daughters were 6 and 9 and picked up the rules easily. It used to be very easy for Mommy and Daddy to win but now that they're seasoned players it's become more challenging for both of us as the girls try out new and better strategies. We also appreciate that there are different variations of the game and have even come up with some "house rules" of our own. The board is good quality wood and the we like the multi-colored glass beads - easily replaceable with the glass "stones" from a craft store if you lose any.

I bought this to bring to Nepal for the kids there. They loved it. The instructions were very easy and they loved the glass pieces.
