Two boys are playing this Mancala game. On his turn a player distributes the contents of a hole, one by one, in a counterclockwise direction into the succeeding holes. If the last bead falls in a hole on either side of the board, making a total of two, four or six beads including the last bead, its contents are captured. If this hole is preceded by other holes which contain two, four or six beads, their contents are also taken. A player must move if he can, but passes when his holes are empty. The game is finished when all holes are empty. The player who captured more beads wins the game. It takes a long time before this game ends.
