Handmade Wooden Board Games

| 8th Aug

We are often asked to make Mancala board games and its not hard to see why, they are such a great family game, any age can play.

This is a traditional African board game, some historians believe the oldest game in the world. There are hundreds of different variations to the basic game Mancala, this particular board is know as a Ntxuva board.
