This variation to Mankala is called Awari which is identical to standard Mankala in many respects, with a different method for the capturing of seeds.
Capturing seeds in Awari is achieved by making either a two or three count in one of the opponent's pits.
Because Awari ends when one player has no pieces to move, there is an Unusual Move Rule that helps keep the game from ending till most of the pieces have been captured.

Although relatively unknown in the West, the game of awari, along with the other games of the mancala family, is widely played throughout Africa and in places such as the Caribbean, Arabia, India and Vietnam.
In awari, players must “feed”: this rule means that when a player has no seeds in his field the opponent must, among the possible moves, choose one which enables this player to sow in the opponent’s field.
When sowing starts from a hole containing more than eleven seeds, no seeds are dropped in the starting hole as the player sows around the board.

The election of the Grand Master of the Kahuraru Awari, selected from amongst the Conclave members, is determined by a vote of all of the Walkers (not of all Lered residents capable of wielding magic).
Although there are no statutes discriminating against non-magic wielders (colloquially called “the Desum”), and the laws of the Eaters of Wisdom (the colloquial name for the Kahuraru Awari) apply equally to all, social status in the city-state is directly proportional to magic knowledge and ability.
Many know of the existence of an labyrinth of subterranean chambers, some created naturally by glaciation, some by magic, which are used by the Kahuraru Awari for magical training, experiments, and other less wholesome functions, but very few know how to navigate the dangerous warren, full of magical booby traps and deadly glyphs.
