mancala

Santa brought Aj the game of Mancala and he was so happy! This is my video game, board game, any game addicted kid. I am first and foremost thankful that he has a game addiction that involves things such as board games as well as video games because I am not a “sit your kid in front of video games” sort of parent. Aj’s video game usage has to be heavily monitored and while I am not always perfect at monitoring the time on his games, I try my best to keep it at a minimum of 20 minutes per day.

When Aj received Mancala from Santa I was so freaking excited! This is a game I learned how to play in the 6th or 7th grade along with me having learned to play Chess {a game Aj also knows how to play}. The only issue with us now having Mancala is that I do not understand how to play it exactly. The instructions that came with this Mancala game do not really lay things out in a way that I understand. Call me slow, call me memory loss girl, call me what you will .. but seriously, how do you accurately play Mancala? Do you know?

    I have never heard of it until now, but I have heard of games with a similar layout.

    This was my oldest son’s favorite game years ago, and it was fun. I have a vague memory of the rules, but not enough to reply accurately. Bet you can YouTube it for instructions though. :)
