Game Time - Mancala

Do any of you know how to play Mancala or Kalah or any one of the gazillion names this game is called? While this game is played worldwide, it's roots can definitely be found through Africa. In fact, I remember my uncle (who was Nigerian) use to have one at their house and I was always fascinated by it. He tried to explain the rules to me several time, but at the tender age of 10 or 11, my brain was more focused on the little stones rather than the whole "rules system." My uncle passed away a few years ago, but I always think fondly of him when I see these.

The love that Wisteria has kept it as a game as well as showing a decorative use as a candle holder. It would be perfect for a side table or coffee table piece.
