Mancala is a popular board game. But hundreds of years ago, it was played much the same way that Coral, Josh and Fiona played it—by digging small holes in the dirt orsand and using pebbles as playing pieces. If it’s a rainy or
indoors kind of day, you can also arrange small bowls for your playing board. Marbles, seashells, pumpkin seeds or coins all work as playing pieces. Once you know the rules, you can play this fun game wherever you go.
Collect as many pebbles as you can in your Mancala (the storage area at the end of the board) before the other player removes all the pebbles from the six bowls on their side of the board.
