Object of the Game
Each player attempts to collect as many snails as possible before one of the players clears his or her side of snails.

The Board or Table
Each player has a side of the table. (top and bottom) The six boxes nearest each player belong to him or her and their large jars or Mancala is to the right.

How to Play
Players alternate turns. In his or her turn each player selects a group of snails from one box on his or her side of the table. Each snail moves one by one in the spots around the board, including his jar but not the opponents jar. Example: If there are 4 snails in his or her box one snail will move into each of the next 4 boxes. If the last snail lands in the players own jar, that player goes again. If the last snail stops on a empty box on the players own side, he captures all the snails from the opponents box directly opposite that box.

How to Win
The game is over when a player has no more snails in play on the table. The winner is the player with the greatest total of snails in his or her jar and any remaining snails on his or her side of the table.
