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.
