Our personalized mancala and cribbage game sets are neat gifts for classic game enthusiasts. Not only are these fun and engaging games a satisfying pastime for players. They are also a wonderful alternative solution for families who want to spend time with friends and family while also taking a reprieve from technology. By adding customized engravings on the top of the game boards, these classic game boards become thoughtful gifts to all board game fans.
|The object of the mancala marble game is to become one of two players that collects the most marbles. There are different versions of this game. One of the versions is suitable for both children and adults, and the other has rules tailored to the skill level of just adults. Mancala is a fun way to encourage kids to practice their math skills. Thus, engraved mancala game boards are an asset to family homes as well as classrooms. Teachers, students, parents, grandparents and kids can enjoy this five to ten minute long game together. Each custom mancala game board and set includes a wooden game board and forty-eight glass stones in a muslin bag. The engraved game board is 5 ⅛” by 17 ¼” by ¾” when opened and 5 ⅛” by 8 ⅝” by 1 ½” when closed.
|Cribbage, on the other hand, is a card game where two players try to get the best hand for each round in order to move their pegs into the most amount of spaces. The player whose pegs cross the finish line first wins. This game requires a little more math skills than the mancala game. Therefore, we recommend this game to players eight years old and older. Including the cribbage game board, each cribbage game set includes a deck of cards as well as six pegs. One player gets the three of them that are blue, while the other has the three of them that are red. Each wooden cribbage game board is 7 ¼” by 4 ½” by 1 ½” when closed, and 14 ½” by 4 ½” by ¾”. All the pieces of the cribbage game fit inside the board when folded up, making the games easy to travel with. Game time can be anywhere at any time.
Both cribbage and mancala provide mental stimulation to their players, by helping players develop math skills, while challenging players to think strategically. They are also a creative way to encourage family and friends to spend some quality time together. We have multiple customizable designs available, allowing these engraved game board sets to become gifts to celebrate important life occasions all year round. These portable game boards are easy to travel with and can accompany families and groups of friends to vacation homes, camping grounds, even family members' houses, like Grandma.
