“Collecting stones? Are you serious?” Yes. Try Star Mancala and you’ll see what happens. The idea of the game is more simple than simple itself: collect as many stones as possible. By having more stones than your opponent at the end of the game, you are the winner.

Mancala is played on a two-sided board. At the beginning 24 stones are placed evenly in 6 pits on each side of the board. Collect the stones from the pits of the board to the larger store on right or try to keep them on your own side of the table.

The game is played in turns by picking all the stones from a selected pit. Moving counter clockwise the picked stones are dropped to each pit one by one, including your store but not your opponent's store. If the last stone gets dropped in your store, you get an additional move. But, if the last stone gets dropped in an empty pit on your side of the table and the opponent’s opposite pit contains any stones, both the last stone and the opposite stones are captured into your store. The game ends when all pits are cleared on either side. The opponent’s remaining stones are added to his store. The winner is the one, who has the most stones captured in his store.

It looks like a very colourful version of a very old game. I have a mancala set and play quite regularly.

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.
