This Folding Wood Mancala set has an Oak finish with gemstone playing pieces. The pieces store inside the board when it is folded shut, and the board slides into a protective sleeve to keep your Mancala set looking good for years to come. Players take turns picking up the stones from one of their cups and dropping one stone in each cup moving counter-clockwise around the game board. The goal is to have the most stones in your scoring cup when the game ends. Mancala is for 2 players. Ages 6 and up. Warning: contains small parts not suitable for children under 3 years.
