The change I made here was subtle. My Mancala board came with these glass beads that looked like "spider" marbles, of various colours, that had been flattened on one side. They really seemed to clash with the rich brown of the board itself. So, I went out and purchased beads that fit the colour pallet better.

This is my favourite game not in the top 2000. It has its roots in ancient Africa. Mancala is a fun abstract game for two players. There are some really beautiful boards available out there too.

Ok, now what is your game?

GWO, maybe about $ 1.00. Lovely old Kalah set with a few extra beans ( there may have been more since I rescued a few from the bottom of the bin). Box is in good shape, too.

My parents had a set with pretty glass stones, which we played a few times. I think I had a brief phase of trying to understand how to play well, but it can't have held my interest much because I don't remember clearly.

I played a friend's set a few times last year to see if it was something I wanted to get back into, but while it was interesting it wasn't enough to draw me in.

Thinking about it is because I heard from my friend that the local Toys"R"Us has this game for sale. It's one of my two favorite "original" games which I have not already owned, the other is Crokinole.

Games in Mancala family are one of my abstract favorites.
I don`t really play Kalaha because it is quite unbalanced in favour of the first player but Oware is much more strategic and fun. I have a self made board and also my pupils like it a lot in school.

Ancient abstract game where players try to score as many beads/shells/marbles/whatever as they can by getting them into their "home" pot at their end of the board. Very simple, but really interesting. Give it a try!

Dust level... perhaps 15 years.

This is a game that I played a couple of times when I was younger, but the last couple of years I have not been playing it much.

I am not exactly sure when I played the game the last time...

Notes: A puzzle/game/calendar store at the mall went out of business and sold its inventory for 55% off. I was chatting about this game with a friend recently and for $6 why not? This is okay, I suppose...nothing special.

We also received a mancala board. Lisa's mother saw this at an auction and couldn't resist. Now, Mancala may not be our kind of game, but wow - this board is gorgeous! It is in the picture for this item - I waited to post until it had gone through geekmod. It folds up to look like a cat, is nicely colored wood, has seashells for pieces and a nice cloth holding for them. Will probably play this more just to enjoy the board, though I think the variant included in the rules is actually not one of the better versions - we'll be trying a different one next time.
