Human Question:
Which game starts with the same letter as Mancala: Chess, Uno, Monopoly, Battleship or Rummycube

Janice Wood says:

I have the game that my uncle made in the 1950’s. It has only 4 players and does not have a corner star but it does have the middle space. I’ve read the rules so will have to adapt minor changes since it is a 4 played rendition.
wanda says:

in the original it is acceptable my great uncle created this game
Staci says:

I could not think of a better name for this game. I got so frustrated (in a fun kind of way) as I tried over and over to win. We didn't have a set of rules to learn how to play, we just asked our parents. The more people you have playing the more difficult it is.
Chris Russell says:

If two people on the same team purposely avoid sending the other home, is that acceptable? Isn't that what the game is all about?
