It’s been a while since Mancala, the game playable at the Book Room, has available to play, as priority was put on Card Jitsu Fire which is likely coming on Thursday.
Previously, the reasoning given by the team was that the game is running a custom source, called Auroris, which isn’t compatible with Mancala yet. Although this is likely still the case, it seems that there might be another reason for this too.
We haven’t done Mancala for a specific reason (other than Hagrid not knowing how to play), you guys will find out what next year. Big things to come!

It seems from this that something unique is being planned for Mancala to give it a twist when it returns (likely next year). Not much has been revealed on what that may be yet, but be sure to check back for more of the latest news and guides!
