Get back to basics and play the classic game of Mancala on your phone!

Mancala is from ancient times. It is one of the oldest known board games. There are many variants, but this game uses the most popular, Kalah.

Note: If you're having trouble updating, please uninstall and reinstall.

The computer does NOT cheat; you are allowed to make multiple moves if your last piece ends up in your mancala pit. Game uses the official rules found at:

- 1-player or 2-player. Play the computer or a friend!
- Instructions - Learn how to play, or check out the rules if you need a refresher.
- Online high scores - Compare yourself to other players.
- Local game history stats - Try to beat your best scores!
- Choose number of stones - Mix it up by altering gameplay.
- Multiple animation speeds - Slow it down to visualize it better or speed it up to play faster.
- Multiple difficulty levels - For beginners to novices. Expert play coming soon - if I ever get enough free time. :(
- HeyZap social sharing integration

***** Instructions Below *****

=== Object ===
Collect the most "gemstones" by the end of the game.

=== Contents ===
Mancala board, 48 multi-colored stones.

=== Set Up ===
4 gemstones are placed in each of the 12 inner pockets.

=== Info ===
The gameboard is placed between both players. The 6 pockets in front of you make up your playing area. The large pocket, called the Mancala, to your right is yours. The other is your opponent's.

=== Gameplay ===
One player starts the game by removing the stones in any one of his own pockets and placing one in each pocket, starting with the next pocket to the right.  Include your Mancala as a space as you place the stones in the pockets.
If there are enough stones to go past your Mancala, continue placing them into your oppenent's pockets. However, skip his Mancala when placing stones.
If your last stone ends up in your Mancala, you get to take another turn. In illustration 1, Player A has emptied his #3 pocket and the last stone ended up in his Mancala, allowing him to take another turn.
If the last stone you place lands in an empty pocket on your side of the board, you get to take that stone, plus all of your opponent's stones that are in the opposite pocket, and place them in your own Mancala if the opponent's pocket is not empty.  Your turn then ends and the next player goes.

=== Ending and Winning the Game ===
The game ends when all six pockets on one side of the gameboard are empty.  The other player takes the remaining stones in his pockets and places them in his Mancala.  The player who has the most stones in his Mancala wins.

bring back previous version the interface looked much nicer and the movement of the pips was easier to track, it's still playable but I prefer the old version

by A Google User the 1/9/2013

Good game, but When it's so good, why news with it with extra permissions and rewards. My reward for playing doesn't need to be logged by a 3rd party.

by A Google User the 1/9/2013

Meh Haven't tried newest one, but ads cause a highly annoying flicker.

by A Google User the 1/8/2013

Used to be good This new version might be good on a tablet, but is impossible to play on a phone. Everything is far too small, the new marbles are confusing, and the graphics are choppy. I will try to restore the old version to keep playing. If I can't, I will have to uninstall it completely.

by A Google User the 1/7/2013

Bring back original version... Please! Don't mess with a good thing . Slow, sad colors& too small for old folks, I'm sorry your hard work to update went the wrong way. i play this game a whole lot on all my phones and patronize the advertisers. I hate To leave. Will miss the entertainment!!!

by A Google User the 1/7/2013

New update horrible Loved this game before the update.

by A Google User the 1/6/2013

Disappointed I loved this game until this morning. The new interface, games play and graphics are a serious downgrade.

by A Google User the 1/6/2013

Was awesome before! Just got the newest update & it is horrible! I used to LOVE this version of mancala, but now the stones collect so slowly & game stalls if comp is to start. Also, game ends & it doesn't even ask you if you want a new game or anything, just stops. I don't care that the stones look prettier & move 'smoother' when everything else is working worse. PLEASE FIX THIS SOON so I can go back to enjoying mancala!

by A Google User the 1/6/2013

too bad it was fun until your addition of the crapware required the permission change

by A Google User the 1/5/2013

Just installed update... NNNOOOOO!!!!! Much less attractive interface and if Computer is supposed to go first, the game stalls. Okay, so the bug with the stones graphic is apparently now fixed, but we get the other problems instead? So sad. Droid X
