Mancala is one of the world's oldest and best-loved games, and our folding wood Mancala board offers an affordable way to play that makes a great travel game as well as a great home edition. Players take turns scooping up the special marbles and counting them out one at a time into the pockets on the board. When they drop a marble into an empty pocket on their side of the board, they capture all the stones in the opposite pocket. It sounds like a simple marble game, but it's got plenty of strategy and it reinforces STEM skills such as counting and strategic planning. The winner is the player who collects most of the marbles. For 2 players, ages 6 and up. Game Contents: Hinged folding wooden playing board, 48 Plastic Stones, and Complete instructions.

Exactly what it says it is, a folding Mancala board. The jewels that come with it are brightly colored, durable plastic, not glass. What you would expect for the price.

mislabeled product
I bought this product for my children to have a game I played as a child. So I ordered the game and when it arrived. I was disappointed the gemstones were plastic pieces that look like smarties not the glass gemstones it specified on the picture and the description on the website.

Fun and educational...

Our 8 yr old grandson loved this game when he played it with friends so it seemed a perfect choice for Christmas. Deemed a "game of judgement, strategy and patience" is a win win in the game department.

Great game

My 3rd grader plays this game at school and loved it so I bought one for the house so we can play with her. It's a great game and it also helps her to know her math at the top of her fingers!

Fun game

Just learned how to play this game. It's fun.

Great game

We love it!!

Not the best quality

I was a little disappointed because the board was a little cheap and the plastic end fell off as soon as I took it out of the box. I had one as a kid with colorful pebbles and a nice latch on the board to keep it closed, so this was a bit of a let down. There are only ugly brown or blue pebbles and you'll have to keep it in the box in order to keep it closed so the pebbles don't fall out. Overall not a bad buy if you're looking for a cheap version, but I was looking for something nicer so ended up returning it.

Cheap Low Quality

I used to have a Mancala game and the stones were glass. I bought this for my daughter and the stones are a light plastic. Because they are so light, it is hard to keep them in the holes while playing. They fall out of our hands. I miss the days when toys were made with good quality products.

Not as described....cheap fake stones

Though the product description says "glass beads," the game pieces are actually cheap little (plastic maybe??) fake stones that look just like Smarties candy. Disappointing. I'll be returning this as soon as I can muster the energy to bear Wal-Mart return lines. Wish the description would have been accurate to avoid the hassle. Or better yet, wish the product would have been as described! Board is nice, on the bright side.

Poor quality

Board would not open very well or lay completely flat. Upon opening hinges fell out and board came separated. Very cheaply made. Had to return.
