After passing days, and after spending it busy at work all day to fund the family, the elderly who are over the age of 65 gather in the city of Al-Salt in Al-Ain Square specifically to play the power protractor game that only those who were exhausted by life were aware of their pleasure in transporting stones from one place to another in the Simple and ancient game.
Al – Mancala game is called the retired game, it requires a lot of intelligence and focus just like the game of chess, and Al – Mancala game came from the act of moving stone from one place to another in the wooden pits of this game.
As for the way it is played, it is usually held in cafes or public squares and takes place through matches within two teams, and the protractor consists of two opposite wooden boards, and in each board there are seven holes and in each pit there are seven stones, where the number of holes is 14 jars and the number of stones is 98 stones.
