Pros and Cons

Pros4

Mancala is an easy game for almost anyone to learn. Even kids - helps them learn counting. It's still playable but it's a little frustrating because they could so easily have made the pits a little deeper. The only thing that could have been improved ...  Read More

It's fun and great to add to a collection of retro games. One of my favorites. Nice xmas gift. Great for gifting too.

The pieces are dovetailed nicely. If one wasn't careful they could definitely get a splinter playing with this set. The game is very soothing and relaxing.

The game board is made well, though there are a few rough spots within a number of the divots on the game board. The engraved details on the top and sides of the board are beautiful. Overall, a decent mancala board game with a few minor gripes.

The game comes in a huge box, covered in weird stickers, extra useless cards, and includes an incredibly obnoxious “timer” that is basically unusable. The actual “cards” are thin paper with poorly printed lettering in a tiny box. The game has cards th...  Read More
