What's New on this version 5.4.1

Improved Error Handling

Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Update caused bugs

    The game is fun and full of features which is great for free games. The last update has errors which don't allow for a consecutive game after hitting play again. Looking at other games if it isn't fixed soon. Understanding it is free, but that isn't an excuse, if the free version doesn't work why would I risk spending money on a paid version to have the same problems. Too many other free options.

  • Ads Ads Ads and More Ads

    I enjoyed this game until 5 or 6 ads would pop up before every single game. Deleted and will not be giving this app another chance

  • Pop up ads block game

    So many ads pop up that the game is unplayable. Deleted!

  • No more chat?

    This was one of the first games I downloaded when I got my first iPhone. Love the game overall. I'm not having the "pop up" or "hang" issues others mention, but no longer have the "chat" option since update. Wasn't a huge fan since could only send preset messages, but was better than nothing. If they want to "fix" something, I suggest the timer. It's really annoying to have someone sit there for a full minute without making a single play. Maybe after 10 seconds, the game should boot.

  • Terrible

    Please go back to before recent update. The adds pop up as i am trying to play the game and last the entire game! Thus is horrible, i wont play anymore.

  • New update is terrible

    I loved this app until the most recent update! Ads go on literally every 2-1seconds! It's really annoying and no longer useful to play games since if you accidentally press on the ad it quits the game.

  • What Happened

    Not only does a buttload of ads pop up after the most recent update, but I can't even get to the mPoints tab because every time I try, the app crashes. How did you screw this perfectly fine app up!?!

  • Upgrade Vanished! (On 6Plus)

    Purchased the upgrade through the game and saw the features were added. Next day open the game and all the features are gone. Also upgrade is $2.99 in App Store and only $1.99 via in game upgrade button?! What just happened?!? Pretty annoyed. Buyer beware! 😠

  • Time out issues

    Good game & fun but when players don't like losing they just let the time run out & most of the time it locks the game up. Also, if you need to answer a call or text while playing your game gets shut down. Would be nice if there was an ability to type personal messages in the chat instead of just the few select options that often don't make sense.

  • No Worky

    Crashes as soon as you open it. Junk.

  • Not really the real game

    I love mancala but this game is not how I've played it that's why I give it two stars

  • Ugh

    The app crashes often! When the app doesn't crash, they end the game early, I know they have a section that when one player gets the most beads, the game ends, but when I'm not playing that section the game will often end for no reason, if the game even allows me to start a game.

  • Game

    I love playing it!

  • Really liked game but now doesn't work

    Haven't played it in a while, but it doesn't work on my iPad2 with the last ios5.? Don't know when it broke? I've since updated and am in iOS 7.? And it still doesn't work? I used to like this game!

  • Players run out clock

    The match should be awarded to the opponent of those running out the clock. Essentially nothing happens when you're losing and you wait out your opponent. So much for fair play.

  • Ba game

    Bad game. Don't get this game it's boaring

  • Thriftyjennie

    Thriftyjennie, you claim that you play your games all the way through? You quit almost every time you play me...need a screen shot?

  • Crashes All The Time

    It crashed every time i tried to open it. I wasn't even able to press anything :(

  • Bad

    Bad game

  • Too Easy

    The setup of the game is nice, and it's easy to learn how to play with their hints, but it quickly becomes way too easy. I am on "advanced" and I outsmart the AI every time, with the same moves. Also, there are too many ads, and they take too long to load. I'd be okay with a banner at the top or bottom of the screen, but this is a whole screen (usually just grey for me - no ad) that you can't skip for about 20 seconds. If the levels were harder, I'd probably give it 4 stars. If the ads were gone, it would get 3.

  • Bugs

    Each time I win I'm asked to write a review, but my screen gets locked up and all I can do is shut down and restart.

  • this game is addictive!

    I love this game so much, and will play it until my phone battery goes dead. The reason why I rated it a 3 star instead of a 5, is because if the cheaters! I can't stand them! I play the game all the way through no matter if I'm winning or losing. Most losers will let the time runout wasting my time, and sometimes I have to forfeit the game and that gives them a point they don't deserve! I at least will lose fair and square, and that's how you become a better player. These cheaters have really high points but they play like crap! Another thing! If you're a winner And you're playing against someone who's not as good as you, stop treating them like they are a waste of your time and play the game through fair and square. Remember you were also a bad player at one time too! And if a person of a low score actually beats you and you're a brainy who has a high score, don't be a soar loser and let the time runout so they can't win a point. You know who you are! And that makes you the biggest loser of all!

  • It doesn't work

    I was able to use this app just for a while. Now I am not able to open it, when I push the icon to open it, it crashes and it is imposible to play. It is a pitty that such nice game was just ruined. And they are selling it online, so I am wondering if they are forcing us to buy it? That is deshonest.

  • Please fix

    I would love to be able to play a few rounds with my friends but, it crashes too much. Also disconnects from game center too much and too often.

  • Pretty bad

    Get another version


    It crashed every time i tried to launch it fix that plz

  • Crashing since the update

    Doesn't work since the update..please fix its my favourite app

  • Chat ?

    I loveee this game ! But .. I wish we could actually talk to your opponent while playing online to give tips, tricks and so forth. It woulddddd be awesome especially since I have been playing with the same people basically everyday . Please make this happen ?(: ~Nena

  • Game

    Great game

  • Frustrated

    Love the game but not the cheaters. The counter only works some of the time so people can sit and wait for you to quit. There should be a kick or a nudge button when their time is up. FIX THE DANG TIMER FLIPSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Why Did They Even Make This Game??

    It take about 15 minutes to load my game. It say I have no Internet to play turn based, then when I check my setting I have perfect service. Don't download this game it is a waist of time!!!! -p.s. if you download this game it will be such a waist of time don't bother!!!! ~KOOL KID KNOWS NOT to download this game again!!!!!

  • Can't play!!!!

    I just downloaded and undownloaded because I go into it it sets up and then quits without any prompting

  • I enjoy the game very much but...

    It's a great game to play and I love that it is able to be a two player game but it never stays open. It closes 2 seconds after I open it every time. I have deleted the app twice and even restarted my iPad but it still does it. Update it and it would get 5 stars.

  • Crashes since update!

    Worked fine until update last August - has not opened since. I have tried reloading, but still does not open. Worked fine until they "fixed" it. Is anyone reading these and will it be really fixed soon??? What good are updates if they make the game unplayable?!? PLEASE FIX THIS!

  • ???

    Does this game let you pick up where u land?

  • Since downloading and reinstalling forces repeat shutdown at beginning! Please Fix!


  • Terrible

    I can't even play the game because it keeps crashing. It will show a screen of some marbles then it goes back to my home screen. I would love to play it but I can't

  • One thing wrong...

    Great game but developer needs to fix the volume of the sound that starts the match....WAY TOO LOUD! I have my volume on phone set to one bar and it still blares

  • Frozen

    Can't open app keeps turning off

  • Doesn't work well with Game Center

    Well I wasted $2.99 to remove the ad for this game and it was not even worth it because I cannot play my friends using Game Center because it always has errors connecting to the server with the game. Need to fix the bugs.

  • Great Game!

    Love this game. Never a problem. Easy to learn and hard to put down. Good old fashion mind fun.

  • Great

    I love this game so much!

  • Can't sign on anymore

    Go going w/the new & improved update. Ever heard of the expression: don't fix what ain't broken - geez

  • Bad game

    Does not crash for me. It just does not make any sense. It does not play it

  • Can't open app

    Was really looking for a good Mancala game. Tried this one but after loading, when I open the app, it starts to load, then disappears. Still shows as "running" but can never get to the actual game screen. Will try loading aging after the next update.

  • Please fix the game

    I love playing mancala! Since I first downloaded this game way back when on my first apple device it's been frustrating playing the online version for a few reason. 1. When playing someone they will exit the game time will run out and the game is frozen. You don't get the win nor the points. 2. Even after beating some opponents you don't get the points for the win. 3. The game just ceases for no apparent reason just says a error occurred. From a fan of this game please fix it!

  • Crashes

    Won't even open

  • Not Working...

    Only does the opening image of a few pebbles and then goes back to the device screen. Uninstalled due to not working. Too bad...

  • Fix the timer

    I would give it 5 stars if when the timer runs out people game is actually over and they limit the forfeits people can many cheaters😡😡

  • Finally!

    They finally fixed the crashing! This is a fun game to play. Great to be able to play online against real people for challenges.
