Icon Mancala 2000 1.3.2

Mancala 2000 is based on the ancient game Bao (known later as Mancala), first played in East Africa. Mancala is played by many tribes throughout Africa, most of whom play their own slightly different variation and have their own special name for it such as: Wari, Warri, Ware, Walle, Awari, Aware, Awaoley, Awele, Oware, Owari, or Wouri. Names of Mancala games are generic referring to all Mancala games in a particular region rather than a particular variant. These names include Bao, Soro (Choro or Solo), Mangola, Gabata, Mulabalaba, Ayo and Sadeqa. Of course these can refer to specific Mancala variants, too.
The best known Mancala games are Ayo from Nigeria and Wari which is played without much variation across West Africa and much of the greater Caribbean area. There are several main ways that Mancala games differ from one another. Most obviously the number of rows on the board differentiates Mancala games into three sorts - two rank, three rank and four rank Mancala.
