Beautifully crafted set for a classic game
Mancala is a simple game that’s very tactical - handling the stones is one of its pleasures - so the Yellow Mountain set, which has varied, natural stones, which are all very smooth, and a lovely carved wood board, is very satisfying.
Mancala game - How to return it
I have contacted you several times about returning the Mancala game but have gotten no response. Please tell me how to return it. The stones are different sizes— some too small to pick up easily— and the board is rough. I ended up ordering another that was less expensive and is nicer. It has smooth glass pieces that are easy to handle and the wood is smooth to the touch.
I never received my order. Still waiting.

Totally love it. Though I do wish it were a little bigger, like the ones I played with in West Africa 40 years ago. Thanks.
Great delivery, perfect game with the “old school” deeper pockets! Thank you! Gwyn Gorrell
