You can ask me here anything.
Perhaps we can drop the category Mancala-like games completely. Obviously you, Clark Rodeffer (Volcano), Wald Amberstone (African Chess) and me (Reverse Mancala) have all different opinions about what is still a mancala game (all of them game experts). For that reason, I think it would be against the Wiki spirit to let these games be judged by just one person (nothing against you personally). Perhaps we should just add a note somewhere (perhaps a template?) that this game's status as a "mancala game" is disputed and let the readers judge by themselves if they want to call it a "mancala game" or just a "mancala-like game" (btw, a differentiation which doesn't make much sense to native speakers anyway) or whatsoever they want.

Dear Admin! - I don't know how to make the template: two-dimensional games. Could you help me? --Mancala lover 16:40, 26 August 2006 (CEST)
Thanks a lot for your work and for giving me advice of the new URL (I shall have to update quite a few it.wiki pages!). I got my account, maybe I will contribute a bit. Thanks a lot and keep up the good job! Moongateclimber 14:21, 1 September 2006 (CEST)
Could you replace "online free recource" with "free online resource". Online resource is a fixed expression and free is an adjective.

zenit view??? - probably you mean "view from above" or maybe "bird's eye view" (the latter expression may sound odd for a photo taken just a meter or so from above). - --Mancala lover 22:41, 13 September 2006 (CEST)
Pussa kanawa is actually a subcategory of multiple lap games. So could you somehow change the wiki that the pussa kanawa games also turn up in the multiple lap category. - --Mancala lover 19:17, 18 September 2006 (CEST)

>> (...) you refer to many references I don't have access to (...)
as a sign that we want to continue our work together and to help each other, we could exchange articles you don't get in Spain and I don't have in my country. I exchanged articles with Jama Musse Jama which was good for both of us.
So just tell me (you have my e-mail) which articles you would like to receive. For my part, I would greatly appreciate a copy of Balambal Ramaswami's articles on Pallankuzhi and Seethaipandi published in Step by Step.

Hi! I saw a video of you on youtube. You're my hero! I also saw on BGG that you designed two games! http://www.boardgamegeek.com/designer/8037 Where can I order them? --Sonja 22:03, 10 April 2007 (CEST)
