ASMR - Mancala
I get my love of from her.
I am so excited to come back and share with you one of my favorite childhood games, The Marble Game.
As I mentioned before when I shared the we come from many generations of game players.
When I was very young, my Dad made us a marble game board out of plywood and my Mom made us a marble bag out of some very cute, carrot fabric, which was filled with colorful marbles.
I only knew this game by the name marble game until I was an adult and learned the correct name was Mancala.
Our childhood Mancala game board ended up at my house, so my girls learned to play The Marble Game with the set their Grandparents had made.
By the time it went through 2 generations it was time for a new game board and marble bag.
Neil Dad of A Mom With A Lesson Plan and I decided it was time to make a new set for each of the families.
What you see here is the new marble board and marble bag.
Hopefully it will last another couple of generations.
If you would rather buy a board you can find one on Amazon —.

A child at age 3 could enjoy this game with adult supervision.
A 7 year old may begin to understand how to use strategy while playing.
Object: 2 players compete against each other to collect as many marbles in their large hole closest to them as they can before one of the players clears his side of all its marbles.
This is a game of strategy and the more they play, they will come to understand this.
Setting up the game: Place the marble board in a horizontal line between the 2 players.
Place 3 marbles in each of the holes.
The 6 holes to the right of them is their side.
Choose a player to go first.
Playing the game: The marble game mancala play online player picks up all the marbles from one of his holes.
The player then starts with the first hole to the right and starts dropping one marble in each hole.
If he reaches the end of his side, he is to drop one marble in his large hole, then continue around to the other side of the board.
If the player places his LAST marble in his own large marble game mancala play online, he gets to take another turn.
Example: If you start the game, a good play may be to choose the hole that is located 3rd from the right.
You would pick up 3 marbles, dropping one in each hole and ending in your large hole.
This gives you an extra turn.
Players are not allowed to touch marbles in order to count them.
If you touch your marbles, you are to play that hole.
Winning the game: The game ends when one player runs out of marbles on his side of the board.
When the game ends, the other player gets to take all his marbles from his side of the board and place them in his own large hole.
Do you have empty holes or extra marble?
Who had the most, or least?
How many more do you have?
You can add different amounts to your starting number such as 5 marbles instead of 3.
read article are so many things that games teach but one of my favorite is good sportsmanship.
I hope you enjoy the marble game as much as we do.
If you play already, do you have the same set of Mancala rules?
Do you have a homemade board?
Do you use something other then marbles?

Yes we have a homemade board made out of two egg boxes and we play with little buttons.
I did not know anything about this game until a few weeks ago we got a package from Malaysia and I read all about it.
I was wondering how old your daughter is and how many buttons do you start with in each hole?
Hi Jan, my daughter is nearly seven and we had 7 buttons in each hole.
She understood the game very well but we had problems with buttons because she wanted to keep all the cute ones pink and purple.
I grew up on a farm in Can you play games on without internet and have such fond memories of sitting in the dust playing our version in little indents worn smooth over time, with pebbles found nearby!
What a fantastic memory!
My kids have a mud pit and I bet they would love the idea of playing with pebbles.
Actually it is our traditional game played by young girls marble game mancala play online years ago.
Here we played with 7 small holes and 7 marbles for each holes.
