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.

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.
