Mancala By Andrew for Android

By Andrew Vreeken Free

Developer's Description

With roots in Ancient Egypt and dating back to 7th century Africa, Mancala is regarded as one of the oldest strategy board games in existence. While it's a simple game to pick up and learn, and strategies can be varied and complex. Mancala is a strategy turn-based board game in which players move stones around a game board. Capture more of your opponents pieces then they can steal from you to win the game. Embrace history and try out the game beloved by many all around the world.


Play against the AI and set your difficulty. Settings accommodate all: beginners can learn with ease and hardcore players can experience an unforgiving nightmare from a deeply challenging AI. Don't know how to play? No worries. Learn the rules of the game from the hand crafted explanation section fully designed with new players in mind. Don't be fooled from the game's basic look. If you're looking to cool down during lunch or for a new challenge, give it a try. Free, no adds, no permissions, homemade, and no data tracking. Developed with the user in mind.

Developer Notes:

Summer Project 2019 - created exclusively using Android Studio, the Mancala app is the very first application I have programmed in full by myself. I learned how to use Android Studio and the Android API from scratch, wrote over 3,000 lines of code, and spent over 150 hours on this application. The AI, which I designed and implemented completely myself, is my proudest achievement of the project. Additionally, a lot of time was dedicated to building a complete multiplayer system in Java from scratch, but unfortunately I couldn't quite figure it out. I will be coming back around in Unity3D to build a full UI and multiplayer system for this game; be on the lookout:) I really hope everyone enjoys what I set out to accomplish. Thanks guys!
