Mancala is a family of board games played around the world, sometimes called "sowing" games, or "count-and-capture" games, which describes the gameplay. The word mancala comes from the Arabic word naqala meaning literally "to move."
Among the earliest evidence of the game are fragments of a pottery board and several rock cuts found in Aksumite areas in Matara (in Eritrea) and Yeha (in Ethiopia), which are dated by archeologists to between the 6th and 7th century AD. The game is thought to be much older, possibly preceding written history.
This board is made from solid alder wood and is 18" long, 5" wide, and is 3/4" thick. The game comes with instructions, small stones for play, and a storage bag. Warning. Choking hazard. Not recommended for children under 5 years.
