Welcome to the traditional Java Game of Dakon, also known as Mancala. Today, this brilliant family board game is played around the world. The history of Dakon dates back to fourth century Egypt and it is thought that the game emigrated with traders and then adapted by Malacca merchants and developed into the very popular Javanese game we know today. The sets are handmade in the shape of various animals, rabbits, fish etc. The most prized and carefully decorated are the signature standing dragons that are simply a work of art.
