EJ Keats: Mancala Game




The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation just launched the new Mancala game I designed. It’s a simple, leisurely paced counting game with elements loosely based on the Keats book “Dreams”. I had fun creating little bottle caps and bolts for the pieces and, after playing the game over and over again, have learned Mancala strategy. Play it now!
