Centuries old, Mancala has gained new popularity as one of the world's most intriguing and clever two-player games. Players take turns scooping up the special stones and counting them out one at a time into the pockets on the board. When they drop a stone into an empty pocket on their side of the board, they capture all the stones in the opposite pocket. It sounds like a simple marble game- but it's got plenty of strategy and reinforces STEM skills like counting and strategic planning. The player who collects the most stones wins!
