Diffusion is a two player game which employs a Mancala board and a set of like-colored stones. Here a 2×6 board with 48 stones will be used. Initially the board is set up with four stones in each of the small pits and no stones in the large pits. Each player owns the 2×3 pit block to his left. The winner will be the first to empty all stones from their block. Diffusion is a unique, robust addition to the family of Mancala games. Draws and ties cannot occur in Diffusion. Mark Steere invented Diffusion on January 20, 2006.
