Before discussing the origins of Mancala, lets first go over the basics of the game. The game is played with rows of pits, either carved into a board or dug into the ground. Game boards typically have 2 or 4 rows, called ranks, or pits. Some versions use pebbles while others use seeds as the playing pieces. The exact rules vary as much as the names. The number of pebbles used and pits per row also vary greatly. The essence of the game is to capture as many pieces as possible. This directly becomes the name of the version from England titled Count and Capture.
