Can anyone identify?

What this item is? I think that it is a game of some type, I have seen them with marbles or beans in them. I found this at a yard sale the other day and for $1 could not let it sit there. If it is some type of a game I would like to clean it up and set it up and have the rules for it. I finished my pumpkins last night but the internet or blogger or my computer is running so slow that I could fall asleep waiting for the pics to post. Have tried to catch up on all of your blogs but I can load one, comment and then the next one won't load.

Pics to come...pumpkins and chairs. Sunday was our church picnic at a local community park. After a week at the fair, sometime around 1 or 2, after lunch, I just was ready to crash. Shawnee and I had Gracelyn on the swings and suddenly watching her go back and forth was hypnotizing me into a sleep. We left and I thought that I would fall asleep before we got home, (only about a five minute drive) when I saw the sign....yard sale!!! Now I am not a big Sunday yard sale person. Never plan on them and usually will pass them by. It must go along with that, Don't Work Outside on Sunday rule that has been in my head since I was young. But this one...well this is one of those junk places that always looks like it is having a sale and I have always wanted to dig through their yard, places. I had to have John turn around and stop, I was energized, I was awake! And then the find...sitting in the back of this old garage under a bunch of junk were these four chairs. I was shaking them testing them for sturdiness, touching and looking and I finally asked if they were for sale. The woman said "yes, ten dollars" I am thinking that it is hard to find a sturdy chair for $20 let alone $10 and I am calculating if I have $40 in cash in my pocket left from the fair. Hmmm, I know that there is some cash in my console for just such an event and surely that dear husband of mine is good for a little cash. As I stand there pondering all this, she says, $10 for all 4!!!! $2.50 each, wow! I have to have them! So now they are still in my car, I am not sure what I am going to do with them. I really have no where to put them, but I had to have them...it was the bargain of it all. Pics to come!

Hi, Cathy,
My girls have a game like this called Mancala...I can look for it when I get home from school today. The one they have has more cavities...so maybe not the same...

I really like painting chairs. I've only painted a few, but I'm always on the look out. Can't wait to see yours. What a deal.

YOu sure it's not a mold for something?
Yeah, it looks like a mancala board, only they have more holes on each side and the have a section at each end to collect the pieces each player has "won."

Cathy, I agree with the first comment about the board being for mancala. Maybe you only got half the game. Our's has more holes too, but looks just like this. ~Ann P.S. Can't wait to see the chairs.
Are you sure its not an egg holder? I have one long and thin very similar and its an egg holder.

yes...the game has more compartments than this one so I am guessing it is something else too. Dianntha
