"The Traditional African Game For Your Mobile Device"

Reviewed by / May 21, 2015

A board game where you fill your mandala and holes with stones.


Mancala is a traditional African game that has been adopted around the world. The basis of the game is to fill your your opponents holes and mandalas with your own stones. It's a pretty fun game that requires some instruction to learn.


The interface is designed well and has intuitive inputs for where finger placement should be. Being able to link up with random players around the world adds to player engagement. The Mancala boards are well-rendered and look good. You can play offline or find friends.


The ads can be quite intrusive and pop up with regularity. Some players seem to take several rounds before it's your turn. Being able to auto-program your favorite board would be nice, as opposed to having to constantly choose it at the outset.

Review of Appgefahren:
"Vor wenigen Tagen wurde Mancala (Download-Link) im Play Store zum kostenlosen Download veröffentlicht.
Doch was bedeutete Mancala eigentlich? Wikipedia klärt auf: “Mancala (von arabisch ?? naqalah ‚bewegen‘) ist der wissenschaftliche Oberbegriff für bestimmte Spiele, die, meist von zwei Personen, vor allem in Afrika und Asien gespielt werden. Charakteristisch ist, dass bei ihnen Spielstücke, die in Mulden liegen, umverteilt werden“.
Auch hier müssen die kleinen Spielsteine so umverteilt werden, dass der Gegner am Ende keine Steine mehr besitzt. Eine In-App-Anleitung erklärt das Spielprinzip gut, auch wenn nur in englischer Sprache. Entweder man spielt alleine gegen den Computer oder fordert einen Freund heraus. Dass im Anschluss eingebundene Video zeigt einige Ausschnitte aus dem Spiel."

    Worst experience ever. Rather play the game on a real board, by myself, then deal with all those adds. They force you to watch the video adds. No way to close until done.
