Possibly dating to the reign of Pharoh Seti I (1366-1333 B.C.), Mancala was spread to the east by Islamic peoples, and west by African slaves. There is a theory that the board may have evolved from a tool for counting livestock. It is a deceptively simple game that is now played all around the world. It is very much a folk game that does not have internationally standardized rules like Chess. So we have collected 20 variations in rules that can be played on the most common style of board. They rang from the West Indies to the Philippines. (Full list of variations below).
