Alugulilmanae board game, integral part of Indian household from ages

"Alugulimane," also known as "Pallankuzhi," ( Mancala) a traditional board game that's indeed been a part of Indian households for generations. It's a game of strategy and skill typically played by two players. The board consists of fourteen pits arranged in two rows with seven pits each. Each player starts with a certain number of seeds or shells, and the objective is to capture the opponent's seeds.

Alugulimane is not just a game but also a cultural symbol, often passed down through families. It's a great way to bring people together, fostering social interaction and strategic thinking. The game's simplicity and depth make it timeless, remaining popular across generations.
