SOCIAL BOARD GAMING HAS NEVER BEEN THIS GOOD!!

See your score position on the leader board and challenge friends to beat your score. Playing others around the world or playing against Galactic Control can help improve your score. Scoring is ranked according to difficulty as follows:

Scores are based on the gems captured when the game is over. The first two digits of the score indicate how many gems you captured to win the game. In addition there is a time bonus that is calculated based on winning the game within 15 minutes. Your bonus points are indicated by the last digits of the score.  This is a reward for quick and correct thinking when making decisions. 

See how your skills are improving by looking at the Achievement board. Achievement points are awarded for the number of wins made in playing the various levels against Galactic Control.

 

ORIGINS OF THE GAME:

The Gemtactix game is derived from mancala games played across Africa and the Middle East, in particular the variant mancala games played in Eastern and Central Africa. The origin of the games are a mystery: however what is known is that they have been played for many centuries as a social pastime for communities on Earth. These mancala games have been compared to Chess and this similarity is explained above.
