Simple but deep, the game itself is ace and this version's AI is perfectly pitched at medium - demanding but not deep blue. two player just works. I'd recommend this to mancala fans or newbies." - Grifter101"Noticed this in the Noteworthy section of the store and grabbed it straight away.

Very very playable and makes great use of the iPad's capabilities." - Degsy314"For those of you old computer geeks like myself, you might remember this game as a game within a game from Quest for Glory 3: Wages of War, or you might just be looking for a fun time waster, and this is it!" - Matthew110607"Great game.
