Supplies: 2 players, Mancala board with 48 Stones
Setup The board is placed between the two players, and four stones are placed in each cup. Each player only plays from the 6 cups directly in front of him/her. The large cups at the ends of the board are the Mancalas. Each player's own Mancala is to the right. The stones only move counterclockwise to the right.
Objective The object of the game is to get more stones in your Mancala than your opponent gets in his/her Mancala.
Game Play The stones from a cup are picked up, and one stone is placed in each cup, starting to the right. If the last stone played ends in your Mancala, you move again.If a player’s last stone ends in an empty cup on his/her own side, the stones from the opposite side are captured. The capturing stone and the captured stones on the opposite side all go to the player’s Mancala.
When a player has removed all the stones from his/her side, the game is over. Any stones that are in cups on the other side are moved to that player’s Mancala.
Scoring The stones in each Mancala are counted. The player with more stones wins the game.Rule A player only plays stones into his/her own Mancala.
