I also want to note the success of the young US national team. In addition the team of Uzbekistan for the first time entered the top three. In 2016 at the II World Games of nomads, Kyrgyzstan showed the best results and I hope that this year the updated team will show excellent results. For preparation to this contest, the funds were allocated to conduct training of the Directorate for National Sports under the State Agency.

Mangala is the intellectual and strategic game of the Turkish people. It is played by two persons. On the game board there are six identical holes arranged in two rows, which together make up 12 small holes, and also there are accumulating large holes – kazans (cauldron), in which players will collect the won stones. The game "mangala" is played with 48 stones.
The game begins with a toss. Players distribute all 48 stones in four pieces to each of the 12 holes, the storage holes remain empty. Six small holes on the side of the board are the player's field, the six holes opposite, respectively, are the opponent's field. Players try to collect as many stones as possible in their cauldron. In the game the winner is the one who collects more than 24 stones in his cauldron.
