recycled eco-friendlyFair Trade and Hand carved from Javanese pule wood and includes cowrie shell playing pieces and instructions.

The essence of this mancala game (also known as Dakon, Conglak), is collecting as many shels into your storage hole as you can. The win and loss of the game is determined by the number of the shells collected.

Educational. The game is used not only for entertainment but also for children as a way of increasing alertness and competence in maths.

These board games are made by a small Fair Trade organisation in Java known as Apikri. The beauty of this organisation is that it is held together by families. Each family runs a small
micro-business which is supported by the organisation collectively.http://www.gamesfromeverywhere.com.au/images/apikri.jpg

As a result, the family businesses are protected from exploitation and doors are opened for productive industry within their communities.

Colours and Designs will vary.

 

Hazard: Small parts. Not for Children under 3.
