Mancala for Beginners: Let's Play!

What is Mancala?

Mancala, also known as Mankala, and the brand name, Kalah, is an ancient board game. There are hundreds of ways to play. If you don't have a wooden Mancala game, you can make one using a clean egg carton with bowls on each end, and marbles, stones, seeds, or some other small item. Have fun!
