Players alternated turns. In their turn, each player had to select a group of stones from one hole on their side of the board. Each stone was dropped one by one in the holes around the board, including their own Mancala, but not the opponent's Mancala.

How to win

The game was over when a player had no more stones on their side of the board. The winner was the player with the greatest total number of stones in their mancala and any remaining stones on their side of the board.
