I was super excited to receive this wooden board set when I saw it online and my goodness, it was even better in person. The colors were bright and beautiful. The design in each pockets were also beautiful. It lives at the center of my coffee table. I can't wait to play it with friends
I placed an order for this mancala game yesterday and it arrived today! Super fast and I actually ordered two. This one and the other beautiful wooden one. Worth every penny. Thank you!
GREAT GAMES=HIGH QUALITY=ENJOYABLE FOR YOUNG AND OLD=. PACKAGES ARRIVED IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS=WILL BE ORDERING AGAIN FROM --YELLOW MOUNTAIN IMPORTS---THANKS, MIKE CAMPBELL...
Came in quickly, elegant packaging, beautiful board and pieces. Have been playing it over tea and coffee. Wonderful addition to the game collection.
My grandsons, twins age 8 and one aged 5 loved this. It was fast and easy to learn, but required strategy, too. Parents and grandparents liked it as well. Service from Yellow Mountain Imports was fast and efficient and the game arrived in good condition. For storage, the stones stay in the little holes and everything goes back in the cardboard box. While a sturdy storage case would have been a nice extra, the price of the game was very reasonable. I recommend this company and game.
