The objective of this board game is to capture the majority of the pieces (or 'seeds') in your kalah.
This version of Mancala uses the traditionaly western rules:
Play begins by selecting a pit on your side of the board, moving ('sowing') each seed, one-by-one counter-clockwise around the board, skipping your opponent's Kalah.
If the last seed lands in your Kalah you get a bonus turn. There are no limits to the amount of bonus turns you can have.
If the last seed lands in an empty pit on your side of the board and your opponent has seeds in the pit directly opposite, you get to move seeds from both pits to your kalah.
If one player has no more seeds to sow for their turn, the other player moves all the remaining seeds to their kalah and the game end.
Give it a whirl, you won't regret it!… Expand
