Addy’s Mancala

Hello, everybody! How’s your day going? Ready for another review of an AG game?

Addy'sMancalaI picked Addy’s Mancala for this one!

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.05.35 PMWhen you click on the game, you’re greeted by a beautiful illustration of a smiling Addy holding a mancala game with beans for it.

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.05.45 PMYou can learn more about mancala by clicking on “about the game”. I love that educational feature because it’s really fun to know the historical accuracy of the game.

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.06.14 PMAnd if you don’t know how already, clicking “how to play” will teach you how to play the game.

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.06.59 PMYou can choose to play by yourself with the computer, or chooseย two players and play with a friend or sibling.

I am of course player one. I used Madi Grace as my name because that’s my stage name and pen name (for my the movies I make and books I write). ๐Ÿ˜€

And I’m playing against… the evil computer! >:(

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.07.16 PMIf I make this move, I’ll get a free turn.

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.07.59 PMFree turns are awesome!

The goal of the game is to capture more beans than your opponent. Whoever has the most beans at the end of the game wins!

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 4.09.34 PMW…w…what? WHAT?! How could evil prevail like that by six, measly beans?! Against the amazing Madi Grace?! That’s it, I’m calling a rematch! *furiously shakes fist*

;P The game is pretty fun to play. Here’s my overall opinion on it…

There is no music, and I really wish there was. If there’s one thing the game is missing, it’sย music similar to music in Addy’s day to give the game more of a historical feel.

The game is overall pretty fun, especially if you’re playing with two players. You could even play with more than two players and have two teams if you wanted to, with names like “Team Awesomeness” as player one and “Team Unstoppable” as player two. ๐Ÿ˜› And the “About the game” feature is always really nice. ๐Ÿ˜€

And that’s my opinion on Addy’s Mancala! I hope you enjoyed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you enjoy seeing my little reviews, or are they boring?

Oh, and next time, instead of me picking the game, you guys get to pick it! Comment below with suggestions (you can have more than one) on what game I should review next. It must be AG, obviously, and it has to be currently available on the AG website. It also must be one I haven’t done before. (So I won’t do Lea’s Rainforest Rows, Frost Fairy, or Addy’s Mancala again since I’ve already done those.) I’ll pick one randomly, and then I’ll do it!

So comment below with your suggestions! ๐Ÿ˜€

        I especially like it since it doesn’t require flash, because I don’t have flash, which excludes A LOT of games @ :/
