Owari is a variant of Mancala where players strategically attempt to capture stones from their opponent's row. Owari contains 3 levels of AI difficulty as well as local and online play.
If you are completely new to the game, that's fine, the game is quite simple to learn!
2 players take control of a row on the board (your row will always be on the bottom side). Players will then take turns choosing a pit (one of the 6 circles in their row) to play the stones out of.
At the start of the game, every pit has 4 stones. When you play a pit, you pick up these stones and then begin to drop 1 stone, per pit, as you move in a counter-clockwise direction.
If your stone lands on the enemy's side, and also lands in a pit which now has 2 or 3 stones in it, you capture the stones in that pit! You can also get chain captures if the pits before the pit you landed in also have 2 or 3 stones.
The first player to capture 25 stones (or more) is the winner!
