Mancala is a popular 2-player board game that was invented in Africa hundreds of years ago. According to Wikipedia, what is known as Mancala in America is actually the game Kalah
, which was introduced by William Julius Champion Jr. in the early 1900s.
This game is played with a board that has 2 rows with 6 holes in each row. There is also a pit at each end of the board. You can find a picture of a Mancala set here
I am going to show you how to make one of these by yourself and save around $20 and the trouble of searching for a set in stores. Plus, who doesn't enjoy working hard and making their own stuff? Also, it's portable, so you can take the set anywhere you want!
