Description:

Enjoy this amazing African Safari experience! Mancala Kalah Free is a fun and challenging count and capture game and is very popular in many African societies and across the USA. You can play games with 3 or 4 seeds (5 or 6 as well in the full version) in each of the pits of the game board. The object of the game is to capture more seeds than your opponent. Play against the computer or with a friend. 4 levels of AI gameplay (easy, medium, hard and master) lets you keep having fun as you improve your game.

1. The board has six small pits, called houses, on each side; and a big pit, called a Kalah or store, at each end.
2. At the beginning of the game, an equal number of seeds are placed in each house.
3. Each player controls the six houses and their seeds on his side of the board. His score is the number of seeds in the store to his right.
4. Players take turns sowing their seeds. On a turn, the player removes all seeds from one of the houses under his control. Moving counter-clockwise, the player drops one seed in each house in turn, including the player's own store but not his opponent's.
5. If the last sown seed lands in the player's store, the player gets an additional move. There is no limit on the number of moves a player can make in his turn.
6. If the last sown seed lands in an empty house owned by the player, and the opposite house contains seeds, both the last seed and the opposite seeds are captured and placed into the player's store.
7. When one player no longer has any seeds in any of his houses, the game ends. The other player moves all remaining seeds to his store, and the player with the most seeds in his store wins.
8. It is possible for the game to end in a draw, with an equal number of seeds each.

Features:
★ 4 levels of AI (easy, medium, hard and master)

Review by RobPey

LOVE IT - If you already know how to play mancala, then you'll love it. If not, you won't. You can't LEARN how to play mancala with this, it's simply too fast. That's my only complaint, even though I know how to play mancala very well, the computer moves so fast that it's difficult to tract what happened. But over all a very neat game. Love the visual effects, sounds and everything. Very glad I downloaded it!

Review by Ben from Sacto

Screw This! - Their version of this game has completely different rules than I've ever played with. I've never heard of stealing seeds from across the board. That's not how this game is really played. Flippin stupid if you ask me!

Review by bruson

Spot on! - Just like the wood and stone game, without the dexterity needed to grab a handful of stones and ensure they are placed properly. With the multiple levels of play, for me as a beginner it is very challenging. Would like the ability to change the number of houses as well as hints to help me improve my game and strategy.
