The object of the game is to capture as many stones and place them in your mancala as you can. The player with the most stones at the end of the game wins.
To play, a player picks one of their holes with stones in it and distributes these stones counterclockwise. Distribution of stones wraps around the board, placing a stone in the player's mancala along the way, but not placing one in the opponent's mancala (if the stones get that far).
If the last stone placed in a hole lands in your mancala, you get another turn. Otherwise it is your opponent's turn.
Also, if the last stone placed lands in one of your holes that is empty, and the hole opposite contains stones, you steal your opponent's stones. Your last stone and your opponent's stones are placed in your mancala, and it is then your opponent's turn.
The game is over when one player is out of stones.
