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

James says:

What the consensus on whether you have to display your chips to other players during the game so they know how much you have? Wouldn't it make sense, similar to poker, that other players have the right to know how much money (points) you have accumulated so they alter their own bets? I did not see anything in the official rules about this.
Alan says:

I don't understand the Elvis card. Most guesses in the example were over $100. Yet two chips were placed on the Elvis card which the answer is assumed to be less then one .
Mase says:

I would like to know how much chips do you begin with in the deluxe version?
Ben says:

Is there any reason why you couldn't play this as teams? I have more than 7 people that will be playing and don't see anything in the rules that would prevent me from splitting us up in team. Just curious if someone else has done this before.
Hank says:

Thanks for the quick link to the game rules. We needed to read through the instructions to clarify a question but can't seem to find ours.
Trent says:

This game is a perfect fit for me. I hate trivia games because I don't know a lot of random facts. But this game you just need to make a logical guess and then there is an aspect of betting on who you think has the right answer. It has just enough of a spin that it is really fun and can involve just about anyone.
