The guide contained five pages, with one containing a diagram of the Mancala board.

AIM OF THE GAME

Each player attempted to collect as many stones as possible before one of the players cleared his or her side of stones.

THE BOARD

The diagram from page 2.

Each player would either have the top-side or bottom-side of the board depending on where they sit at the Mancala board. The six holes that were nearest to each player belonged to them, and their large holes (also known as the Mancala) were to their right.

HOW TO PLAY

Each player had alternate turns, meaning that one player would go first, followed by the other player, which was then repeated. During each turn, players could select a group of stones from a hole on their side of the board. Each stone was dropped one by one in the holes around the board, including their Mancala but not their opponent's Mancala.

FREE TURNS

If the last stone landed in the player's own Mancala, that player would be given a free turn which allowed them to make another move.

CAPTURES

If the last stone landed in an empty hole on the player's own side, they would capture all of the stones from their opponent's hole directly opposite of the player's hole, including their stone.

HOW TO WIN

The game would end if a player clears all of their stones from their side of the board. The winner was the player with the highest number of stones in their Mancala and any remaining stones on their side of the board.
