My main complaint with the set was the stones, which are painted micro-pebbles of varying sizes. Although the irregular shapes contribute to the faux-authenticity of the game, they are extremely hard to handle, pick out of the small board holes, and distribute without dropping into the wrong hole. There is also a strong possibility of having your carefully held fingerful of stones fall away completely, scattering across the floor and initiating a completely new kind of game!
My second problem with the set is the instructions. There are several variations on Mancala, and this one is obscure and hard to understand. No other options are presented for the players to use.
Skip this one, set aside a little extra room, and take a full sized board with real stones.
This version of this game (as previously noted by another reviewer) has such tiny "pieces"/"stones" that even my tiny third grade girls were unable to play with it. They said the pieces and compartments in the game were too small and it was too difficult to play. They chose another activity because of this problem. Also, the tiny "stones" will be very easily lost and very difficult to replace...unless you have TINY pebbles near where you live. The "stones" in this are smaller than most pieces of asphalt that crumble off of roadways. I'm SERIOUS.
Go for a larger version!!
