How to Win
Strategically remove pieces to gain the most points. If you have the most points at the end of the game you win.
How to Win
Perparation: Pull back on the crossbar and randomly place all of the pieces on the game board, gently release the bar. The pressure is on!...quite literally.

Game Play: Players take turns pulling out pieces without causing the bar to move. If successful, you keep the pieces. If the bar moves, your turn is over and your piece is sent to the discard pile. Once all of the pieces have been removed, the points are tallied and the player with the most points wins.

Large pieces = 15 points
Medium pieces = 10 points
Small pieces = 5 points

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

Question: If the line moves and some pieces get on the framework (not within the game area within the board) are they out of game? Are these pieces in game or in the discard pile? Is the framework the board? We have the prop that some consider the framework out of the board as it is not the game board. Other say that it is called "board" and board is the whole thing. For me, it does not make sense that the framework counts- it is the framework, not the game board. I cannot find clear definition. In the description, it only talks about board without making any concrete explanation. For any help, we would be very thankful!

Great Family game. Much more popular in the pre-CP generation - sadly! I hope one of my Great-Grand Children will play the game and enjoy it!
