Review of Appgefahren:
"Vor wenigen Tagen wurde Mancala (Download-Link) im Play Store zum kostenlosen Download veröffentlicht.
Doch was bedeutete Mancala eigentlich? Wikipedia klärt auf: “Mancala (von arabisch ?? naqalah ‚bewegen‘) ist der wissenschaftliche Oberbegriff für bestimmte Spiele, die, meist von zwei Personen, vor allem in Afrika und Asien gespielt werden. Charakteristisch ist, dass bei ihnen Spielstücke, die in Mulden liegen, umverteilt werden“.
Auch hier müssen die kleinen Spielsteine so umverteilt werden, dass der Gegner am Ende keine Steine mehr besitzt. Eine In-App-Anleitung erklärt das Spielprinzip gut, auch wenn nur in englischer Sprache. Entweder man spielt alleine gegen den Computer oder fordert einen Freund heraus. Dass im Anschluss eingebundene Video (YouTube-Link) zeigt einige Ausschnitte aus dem Spiel."
Wish you a very happy new year!

Congkak is a variant of Mancala game that often played in Malaysia, Indonesia (Congklak), Singapore and Brunei. It is a two-player board game, and each player will have seven houses plus one storehouse. Initially, there are seven seeds within the houses before both players distributing their own seeds in clockwise direction (i.e. known as sowing). During sowing, player will skip the opponent storehouse but not the player's own storehouse. Both players will start simultaneously during the first round. Player's turn is over when the final seed falls into an empty house. However, if the last seed falls into a player's own house that is unoccupied after one round of sowing, the player can remove the last seed and all the seeds in the opposite house into the player's own storehouse. If the house is occupied, then the player will continue sowing. Player will get a free turn if the final seed of sowing ends in the player's storehouse. Player who has collected more seeds is the winner.
Main features include:
★ A REAL Congkak gameplay.
★ Three types of gamemode.
★ Three levels of AI.
★ Six different colors of marble (blue, green, red, cyan, pink and purple).
★ Can play with your friend offline.
★ Automatic movement during sowing.

Mancala is a very old game that was played in Africa in countries like Syria, Lebanon or Egypt.
This game was mentioned first in 6th and 7th century AD and all that players needed was some seeds and a wooden Mancala board.
Although it is an ancient game it required intelligence, attention and vision.
This board game is also known in different countries or regions with other names like: Woro, Awele (Awale), Oware (Owari), Kboo, Kbo, Ayo, Ayoayo, Kale, Aghi, Bantumi.
In America you could find it under the name of Mandink and in Kenya or other countries from Africa as Endoidoi.
But by far the most common other names are Kalah and Oware (Owari). And also maybe Awele (Awale) or Ayo and even Wari. All this are names from Africa so the origin of this game must be Africa.
It was brought in USA under the name of Kalah and a commercial version became popular in the 1940s. in the West Africa and the Caribbean you could find the name Oware (Owari).
Both Kalah and Oware (Owari) represent this board game but maybe with some changes. It is said that Kalah or Oware (Owari) are not a Mancala game but are part of the Mancala familiy board games.
Your objective is simple: get more gems ( gold ) than your opponent. So if you collect more gems ( gold ) in your mancala at the end of the game you are the winner.
But sometimes is not that simple. There are some rules and strategy that can help you or destroy you.
Each player have 6 cups (or different number of cups). Initially each of the cups has the same number of pieces of gold (there is the option where you can have a variable number of pieces of gold) and the opponents will take turns.
On each turn you must select one of your cups that contain gems in it and redistribute it's gems clockwise to the next cups. If the last gem that you redistribute lands on your mancala you receive another turn. If the last gem that you redistribute lands on an empty cup from your side you "steal" all the gems from your opponent side. The game ends when you or your opponent have/has no pieces of gold in the cups from your or his side.
You can play this board game agains a friend or against the computer. You can change the number of gems in each cup (2,3,4 or 5 or variable), the number of places for gems available in the cups and 4 type of difficulty for the computer. Some graphical changes are also posible like the colors of the gems. You also can play in a time limited per round and also change the first one to start (you or the computer).
Don't forget to play the quest of this board game. 4 seasons available with 32 levels each. The computer will became stronger as you manage to move forward. He will play more aggressive or more defensive. The number of pieces of gold will change and other interesting things that will make this quest very nice. The second season is time limited so for each turn you will have a limit amount of time to do your move. If you don't make the move you will lose your turn. It gets really complicated at the end when you will only have 3 seconds for your turn. The third season is with a variable number of gems in each cup so the clasic strategy and moves could not be used here. The fourth season is where everything is changed. The numbers of cups, the number of cups holders or gems. This is the most difficult season.
