The name Mancala is a rough translation of the Arabic 'to move' which is exactly what's involved when playing the traditional African game of Mancala.
Although those playing Mancala traditionally use a wooden board, this video
shows two African children playing Mancala on the streets of their village
without a board, as the game can be just as easily played using stones and by
making holes in the ground.
