Rules of MancalaRules of Mancala by PotatoeHuman
Set Up: 2 players sit facing each other with the board between them. Each player is allocated the row small bins closest to him and a larger scoring bin or mancala to his right. Place 4 stones in each of the 12 smaller bins. Decide which player will move first by flipping a coin.
Playing: The first player picks up all the stones in any of his 6 small bins. He then starts to sow them by placing one stone in each bin to the right or counterclockwise around the board, including his own mancala-but not his opponent's mancala. If the player places his last stone in his own mancala, he then gets another turn. If the last stone is placed in an empty bin on his side of the board, he captures all the stones in his opponent's bin directly across from that bin. All captured stones plus the capturing stone get placed in his mancala. Once a player touches the stones, he must play them. Players are not allowed to touch the stones to count them.
Winning: The game ends when one of the players runs out
