Build the African Board Game "Mancala"

These plans are for making the game "Mancala".

The national game of Africa, known as "Mancala," has caught on with Americans. You can join in the fun by making a Mancala board in your home workshop. All you have to do is follow the details in the plan.

One of the oldest games in the world, Mancala is played by two people. The object is to capture the most counters. Each player places the same number of counters (coins, marbles, etc.) in six holes on his side of the board.

The game of Mancala is over when all the holes on either side of the playing board are empty. The player with the most counters in his scoring bin is the winner. Mancala can be enjoyed by everyone except the smallest youngster.
