Contest: Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win a free copy of Mancala. 50 Free Copies to be won!!

Jerome of BBerryGO dropped me an email yesterday to let me know he has released Mancala for BlackBerry. The game of Mancala is simple to play and is an amazing time killer. You move your "stones" around the board and try to caputre as more than your opponent. The clear graphics and vibrant colors make this game easy on the eyes. Perhaps the best feature of Mancala is that you can have a multiplayer game with a friend over BBM (Note - does not yet work properly with BBM 5.0). I tested this out with Bla1ze yesterday and it runs very well - much better than I had imagined. Mancala runs on almost all devices is available for $0.99 at

To kick off the release, we have 50 free copies of Mancala to give away! Just leave a comment on this post to be entered. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment - multiple submissions won't count.

New Game Mancala Features Multiplayer Mode Over BBM



i think i use to play this game when i was younger....didn't it originate in Africa or something with small stones?

My kids introduced me to this game a few years ago and I really liked it. Would love to win one so I can challenge them to a game or two.

I have the real wooden set and to be able to take it with me on my phone would be awesome!! Love this game!!! I hope I win!!!

Wow this is awesome. I would love to win this but if I don't I might just buy it anyway. And talk my BBM buddies to buy it too.

I so hope I will, I really like this game. sounds like a great concept being able to play others. Well done!

That looks like it could be enjoyable...just need to find out how to win 2 free copies so your buddy can play with you too, lol

I love this game!! I have to always borrow my mom's iPod to play it because she has it on it and I feel like a loser doing that when I have such a great device and hope I have this great game!!

How exciting! I love mancala!! Thank you for continuing to provide a great service to the BB world!

I can see my daughter playing this game for hours and I'll never get my BB back until the battery dies. Hope I win a free copy!
