OWARE…MANCALA (from Ghana)
One egg carton
48 small rocks
one bowl for each player
Put four rocks in each cup of carton and each
player takes aside. Player ONE picks up all
the rocks from any one of the six cups. He
circles counterclockwise around the carton,
dropping one rock in each cup. When all the
rocks have been dropped, he picks up all the
rocks in the cup and continues circling
around the carton. Repeatedly dropping and
picking up rocks until he drops his last rock
into an empty cup. Then player TWO does
the same thing. When a player drops his last
rock and it makes a group of four, he
captures these rocks. When eight rocks are
left in the carton, whichever player captures
the next four also gets the final four. The
winner is the one with the most rocks
captured at the end of the game.
