I wanted to get this game for my granddaughter that loves it. I ordered it and it said it was in stock. It was also in stock at another local store. When I went to check when it will be ready for pick up, much to my shock my order was canceled. I did not get any notification. We were very disappointed. How could you say you have it in stock in at least two local stores and then turn around and cancel my order?. Not to mention lose my free cash .
I've loved Mancala since I was a little girl. So when I saw this, I was really excited and bought it. But I was definitely disappointed. The wood is a nice thick quality, but not sanded down well so there are sharp, rough surfaces and pockets. The two sides do not line up so when it is open, it's off set (drives me crazy). The hinge gap section when laying flat is wider than it should be. The stones are a weighty stone, but they are way too large for the game board. As the circle pockets collect gems, they overfill with no where to go. They should have been smaller stones. It's fine enough for basic purposes I guess, but all of these little off-things indicate it was a quick manufacture and just not up to par. I recommend looking for a higher quality one.
