-:- mancala -:-

do you ever play
ned and i are playing today.

i learned to play mancala
when i was in elementary school,
and it's still one of my favorite games.

i have had this wooden board and stones
for almost 25 years - i bought it in the old port
in portland, maine, long before i had kids.

i have seen mancala for sale everywhere,
but you can make a homemade version
using an egg carton.
{i would recommend using stones or buttons, not paperclips}

and check out this one

this one similar to mine
i think the board is so pretty that i put a
sawtooth picture hanger on the back
and it hangs on the wall in our family room.
a mancala board would also be great to display
shells or beads or pretty rocks.

here's a new one made by the same person
who made mine, so many years ago

would you like a copy of my
torn & tattered instructions sheet?
thought so.
right click each page to save, then print.
conserve paper by printing page 2 on the back of page 1.

I was gonna ask how you play. we have this game somewhere but never play because the instructions we have are so confusing ( I think they're a very bad translation). So thanks for your instructions! Awesome.

I have not played in so long, I forget how!
Gonna read the rules out of curiosity when I have time.
