Icon Macbeth 0.0.29

Macbeth is a beautiful and minimalistic FICS client for OSX. It supports almost all FICS game types like Suicide, Losers, Wild and Crazyhouse and saves your games automatically. It is open source

What is FICS?
FICS is the acronym for Free Internet Chess Server. Run by volunteers FICS is completely free. FICS can look back on a long and eventfull past. It started its service as early as 1995. Beside chess FICS offers a variety of chess variations like Losers, Suicide, several 'wild' variations, Crazyhouse and Bughouse. If you don't have an account you can always play with a guest login. But I recommend to register and create an account. FICS will track your rating, you can stay in contact with other players and join tournaments. You can register here.

Macbeth is still a work in progress! A lot of functionality FICS offers is not (yet) implemented, ie. playing Bughouse, chatting with your oponent, but Macbeth will store your games automatically!

Icon Mancala 2000 1.3.3

Mancala 2000 is based on the ancient game Bao (known later as Mancala), first played in East Africa. Mancala is played by many tribes throughout Africa, most of whom play their own slightly different variation and have their own special name for it such as: Wari, Warri, Ware, Walle, Awari, Aware, Awaoley, Awele, Oware, Owari, or Wouri. Names of Mancala games are generic referring to all Mancala games in a particular region rather than a particular variant. These names include Bao, Soro (Choro or Solo), Mangola, Gabata, Mulabalaba, Ayo and Sadeqa. Of course these can refer to specific Mancala variants, too.
The best known Mancala games are Ayo from Nigeria and Wari which is played without much variation across West Africa and much of the greater Caribbean area. There are several main ways that Mancala games differ from one another. Most obviously the number of rows on the board differentiates Mancala games into three sorts - two rank, three rank and four rank Mancala.
