Play the classic African board game against a challenging computer opponent, or another person!

Features:

- Selectable difficulty level
- Human vs. iPhone or Human vs. Human
- Select from 3 to 6 starting seeds per pit

This version of Mancala uses standard Kalah rules:

- Each player's pits are filled with a preset number of seeds

- On any given turn, a player may sow seeds from any of their pits, proceeding counterclockwise around the board, skipping the opponent's store

- If the last seed lands in the player's own store, the player gets a free turn

- If the last seed lands in an empty pit on the player's side, and the opposite pit contains seeds, the player captures both the single seed, and all seeds in the corresponding pit on the opponent's side

- When either player has no seeds in any of their pits, the other player's seeds move into their store, ending the game

- At the end of the game, the player with the highest number of seeds in his or her store is the winner

COMING SOON:

- More advanced Mancala rule sets, including Oware

Mancala supports iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The easy to use interface design makes it simple to control. You can play the game against a challenging computer in one player mode, or against another person in two-player mode at geme center.

Features
1.Three levels, meeting needs of all players.
2.Great graphics and exciting sound effects.
3.Support iPhone Retina, better visual effect.
4.At Game Center, play with a person at anywhere through Internet.

Rules:
At the beginning of a player's turn, they select a hole with seeds that will be sown around the board. This selection is often limited to holes on the current player's side of the board, as well as holes with a certain minimum number of seeds.
In a process known as sowing, all the seeds from a hole are dropped one-by-one into subsequent holes in a motion wrapping around the board. Sowing is an apt name for this activity, since not only are many games traditionally played with seeds, but placing seeds one at a time in different holes reflects the physical act of sowing. If the sowing action stops after dropping the last seed, the game is considered a single lap game.
Multiple laps or relay sowing is a frequent feature of mancala games, although not universal. When relay sowing, if the last seed during sowing lands in an occupied hole, all the contents of that hole, including the last sown seed, are immediately resown from the hole. The process usually will continue until sowing ends in an empty hole. Another common way to receive "multiple laps" is when the final seed sown lands in your designated hole.

An game of Mancala for the iOS.

In Russia they call it Kalah, in Nigeria it's called Oko, in Malaysia it's called Congkak, but most of the world knows it as Mancala: the strategy board game that many believe to be the oldest game in the world. If you've never played it before, Mancala will take you just minutes to learn, but it will take a lifetime to master as you need to exercise good judgement, patience and lateral thinking with every move.

The board is made up of six pits per player.
The number of starting stones is placed in each of these pits equally.
Each player has a store to the left or right of the board. This is where the stones are deposited and can't be removed.
The game begins with one player picking up all of the pieces in any one of the holes on their side.
