Description Edit | History

A multi-player version based off of an ancient game, the players take turns removing tokens from one of their pits, and distributing them, one per pit, into the pits to the right.

Play continues until one person clears out all of their pits, or when all other players have filled their six penalty markers.

Pass It On: A game of wits

The original advertisement is an overhead view of the trays with some hands, and reads:
Psst. . . .
Pass It On!
The word is getting around about this great new game of strategy, skill, lots of laughs.
Pass it on. . . .

From the mancala group of games (unnamed above). One comment says it's from a 1930s public domain game called Ruma.

Components consist of
4 plastic trays (14" x 4") with cash-register-like slots to hold the chips and six round indentations for your penalty chips. The trays are red, blue and of course avocado green, and orange. They link back to back for two players, make a triangle for three, and a square for four. As people are eliminated you make the shape smaller.

56 yellow chips, 4 white chips. They are nickel-sized with a pointing hand molded onto both sides.

Illustrated instructions are on the back of the cover.

You choose a section, pick up all your chips in it, and plant them going counter-clockwise, just like mancala. You have an OUT box that is your mancala and you don't take chips out of it. You CAN round the corner to put chips into your neighbor's sections. (See cover photo of gleeful boy and pouting girl.) You may not put yellow chips into an empty section, only white. If you cannot play you get a penalty chip for your penalty section. You win by being the first to clear all chips from your five sections. Or you can win by default if all other players have filled their six penalty holes.
