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.
It's was lovely thank you for the Mancala I love it.
This game board is perfect for my niece who loves games and I loved the painted artwork on it.
My family loves it!
