Personalized mancala and cribbage game sets are a creative way to encourage family and friends to spend some quality time together. Both games strengthen players’ counting skills and ability to think and play strategically. These qualities of the game make play time fun for both children as well as adults.
While both games are educational, mancala is more fitting for children at a younger age. Not only is it a great game to have around the home, but it is also a wonderful asset for a classroom. Plus, the game only takes about 5 to 10 minutes, which makes it perfect when needing a quick way to entertain a child. While cribbage also strengthens counting skills and the ability to play strategically, it is geared to more experienced players. Unlike mancala, this game requires a longer length of playing time as well as the ability to perform multiple steps during a turn.
Both boards of the mancala game set and the cribbage game set are made of wood, making them long-lasting and endurable. The wooden mancala boards measure out to be 5 ⅛” by 17 ¼” by ¾” when opened and 5 ⅛” by 8 ⅝” by 1 ½” when closed. The set comes with 48 glass stones in a muslin bag for safe keeping. On the other hand, the cribbage board is 7 ¼” by 4 ½” by 1 ½” when closed, and 14 ½” by 4 ½” by ¾”. The cribbage set contains the board, a deck of cards, 6 pegs (blue and red), drilled counting peg holes, and a felt card holder. 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.Take a look at our collection of gifts and games.
