CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Played by more people than any other game in history, mancala is simple to learn yet surprisingly challenging to play. Your object is to collect the most stones in your mancala (a bowl at the end of the board). Strategy, which shifts depending on which version of the game you're playing, is necessary in determining where to begin and end your turn to gain the best advantage. Travel Mancala checks in at a mere 4.75 inches by 3.5 inches, so it's small enough to tuck into a backpack or bag. No worries about lost stones either: a loop-and-peg closure on the hinged, hardwood board keeps them snugly in their cubbyholes. --Julie Ubben
Fast, fun and timeless, Mancala is an ancient game of strategy from Africa. Front Porch Classics brings you this attractive, sturdy set that folds up and stores inside the board, so you can take it anywhere. Includes a satin-finish, folding wooden board and glass game pieces, plus instructions for playing Mancala. Kids and adults compete at the same level, making Mancala a great game to play with your children. There's no reading required, and young children quickly learn to count up the Mancala stones. Mancala is simple to learn and a complete game takes about 20 minutes. Some of the earliest Mancala boards, found in Egypt, date back almost 4,000 years. Today, Mancala gets applause from parents, educators and kids as a fun-for-all-ages game that takes a quick hand, a keen eye and a dose of strategy. Winner of the Parents' Choice Award.

I wanted a small travel version of this game. I didn't realize quite how small it was going to be! The "stones" are the size of aquarium gravel. Read morePublished on July 27, 2011 by KnottedKnitter

I suppose I expected something just a little more substantial. Held together by string, and with stones so small that I'm sure I'll be losing them quickly, this toy may be just as... Read morePublished on October 21, 2008 by Patrick A. Moore
