Mancala Solver

Purpose

This is a basic program to solve a board game called Mancala. More information on the rules of Mancala .

It is a bit of a hack using a very basic min/max search to find the optimal move. It does not try to look more than one move ahead as it did not seem necessary.

I am not the world's best Mancala player (having read the rules and played it once) so any feedback on the game and its playability would be appreciated.

History

This was written in a few hours after getting the board game as a present.

Operating Systems

I have tested it under Mac OS X and Xcode but the code should compile and run anywhere.
