Description Edit | History

This is just a version of Mancala with the same rules, each player starts with 3 stones per space. I will try to summerize the rules as follows:

The board consists of 14 spaces. Six spaces per player as well one "cache" space for each player. The game starts out with each player having 18 stones on their side of the board. A player picks up stones from one location and moves counterclockwise around the board depositing one stone per space passed. A player is attempting to deposit as many stones as possible in his "cache" for points. Each time he passes over his cache he deposits another stone which is out of the game. Depending on the space a player lands on with his last stone, it is possible for a player to get a bonus turn. Players try to plan out their moves in such a way as to continue their turn. If a player successfully deposits all his stones in his cache he "captures" any stones remaining on his opponents board for additional points.
