Beautiful walnut mancala board with a smooth, protective finish. Folds up and latches closed for easy storage. This mancala board is a sturdy, solid wood item made out of a single, continuous piece of walnut - you can follow the grain in the walnut from the start of the mancala board all the way to the end.

Full set of glass 'stones' included so that the board is ready to play. Some folks pick up special stones and beads to really make the mancala board "their own". Please send us photos if you do this, we love seeing people's ideas! As with all our products, this is proudly made in Snohomish, Washington.

Mancala has been around for a very long time - there's concrete evidence of mancala being played in the 3rd century AD. Amazingly, mancala is considered one of the oldest games still played, and there are numerous variations and rules. Our family tends to follow this simple ruleset:

* Player picks up all the stones from a hole, and drops one stone in each hole going clockwise starting with the next hole in line.
* If player ends in their 'bucket' at the end, they get to go again.
* Game continues until there are no more stones outside of the buckets on the end.

If you've chosen the custom engraving option, please message us the picture you'd like engraved, or type the message below (and style of font) and we'll send you a preview of what it should look like.

Open, the mancala board is about 5.5" wide and 21" long. Closed, it's about 10.5". As product this does come with small glass gems you should be cautious with it around children. The glass pieces can pose a choking hazard. Production time is usually 2 weeks, depending on whether we have the board in stock at the moment.
