Mancala Cultural Classics Edition
This edition of Mancala is one of the finest iterations available and perfect for gift-giving or coffee table display. It combines the rich history of rustic African petroglyphs with the beauty of African trading beads. Mancala is a timeless 2-player game that has evolved from countless versions played for centuries worldwide. The earliest versions were played with seeds on the ground in small burrows scooped from the earth by hand. Stone carvings and tomb paintings, known as petroglyphs, are scattered throughout Africa and Asia, depicting the earliest versions of Mancala being played in various social settings.
Reflecting traditional African values, players encouraged participation by onlookers making it perhaps the most social 2-player game around. Maybe most importantly, the game and its many variations also played an important role in teaching arithmetic to African children. This game includes a hardwood board, playing pieces in 4 different styles, and instructions. For ages 8 years and up.
