For reference

Mangala is an intellectual and strategic game from Turkey for two people. The board consists of 6 wells arranged in two rows, plus two storage wells at the end of the board, where players collect stones. Mangala is played with 48 stones.

The game begins with players drawing lots. They then distribute the 48 stones through the 12 wells, so that each well has 4 stones and the storage wells are empty. Each player controls the six well across from him, while his opponent controls the wells in front of him. The goal of the game is to collect as many stones as possible in their storage wells. The person with the largest number of stones in their storage well at the end of the game is declared the winner.

Each team has five people, including two men, two women, and one coach. Competitions are held individually and in groups.
