Sungka

 

I found this entry on Flickr, in the group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/gamesboardandotherwise/pool/

Sungka is a traditional Filipino Game played by two participants. The objective of the game is to amass stones or cowrie shells in the player’s home base by continuously distributing the shells around smaller holes until the player runs out of shells to distribute. The person who collects the most shells in his or her base wins.
The container shown here is carved from molave wood.
