A Mancala style board game as played in East Africa. The main objective in the game of Bao is to steal all the seeds from the opponents rows, by stringing moves together and ending in an empty pit opposite the seeds you want to steal. The game supports both pass'n'play as well as computer opponents at different levels. Two different game variations are included. I created this game after being fortunate enough to visit East Africa on my honeymoon. While there, we visited a small village in Malawi, and the kids there taught us this game. The people of Malawi are truly amazing, but unfortunately they don't have much, and struggle with poverty and taking care of their amazing country and wildlife. This game is my attempt to give back to the people who touched our hearts with what I do best: Writing apps. The more you play this game the more this app makes through ads, and the money is donated to an organization that works on improving the lives of the people in Malawi.

my first time to see this game, so it took about 8 games to learn how the moves were made and must be sure your curors is on the arrow to make a play.... I really enjoy Bao

I love this app. I recommend it for sure! Theres only one reason I did not give it a 5 id prefer to giv it a 4.5 but anyway my reason for this is because there is a small glitch. It might be just me but a few of the times I was play the Malawi version, on normal, I got the computer to there last piece and there last piece is in the bottom right corner. once its there turn it won't move and I have to restart the game. That the only issue I found with this game but I still think its definitely worth the download. Fix this little glitch if you can PLEASE because I really want to give you five stars. You all deserve it!

I get why they're there but could the animations be any faster? I love mancala and it's basically the same thing but it would be nice if it was a little bit faster.
