Game Play:
Each player starts with 6 Pits (filled with 4 gemstones), totaling 48. The object of the game is to get the most gemstones in your Home Pit (Your Right Most Pit).
You get an extra turn if your last gemstone lands in your own mancala.
There is no luck or cheating in this game. This game is all about mathematical skill. Use techniques such as:
- free move (last stone ends up in your own mancala)
- hoarding
- forcing other player into Defense,(when you empty out one of your pits, creates capture oppurtunity later).

    Waste!

    This game works and follows the rules correctly for mancala. That is it for positives!

    The speed of this app is AWFUL. I have to hit the pit I want to play more than once to get this register. Once it does register, you want to gouge out your eyes or bang your head against a wall waiting for each marble to get placed in its new pit. It really is a long delay. I played 1 player and it took OVER 3 1/2 min for one round.

    I have very few apps on my NOOK color and now I know why! I'm just going to stick to my phone for apps and my NOOK for reading!

    AAA

    I am gradually learning how to play this game. It gives the brain cells a good workout, but challenging games are the best. No time delays as other reviewer mentioned. Winning is such a glorious thing!! (Catpurrson)
