The object of the game is to create a row of 5 marbles, but that when the twist comes in... with each move you also twist a block for a perpetually changing play board. Pentago is a multiple award winning two player game, that is challenging and fun for both kids and adults.Fun for beginners and masters alike!

Every time you play a piece you must rotate a piece of th board. This ever changing board creates a greater challenge. It promotes spatial orientation, hand-eye coordination, problem solving and team building skills.

I recommend getting this version rather than the 2-player version (smaller board), especially since you can easily play this with two players by using only 4 of the squares rather than all 9. There were comments in a previous review regarding durability. Yes, this is plastic and not wood but so far in the 4 months we have had it, we've found it to be good enough. You don't want to force the turntable-style squares to rotate; you have to give them a tug to "unlock" them from their position and then rotate them. To reduce wear-and-tear, we have a no-rotation-necessary rule at the start of the game; meaning, if you are placing the early discs in the game and have no need to rotate, there is no obligation to do so.

I have not found a sure-fire strategy to this. My 12-year-old daughter likes this game and appears to plot out an aggressive approach to getting the required 5 discs in a row. I find that if I mirror a couple of moves or put her on the defensive, then I can get her distracted enough to lose. Otherwise, we seem to split the games we play. Either way, it's educational in the sense that you can perform some spatial planning, especially given that a portion of the board will rotate after each turn. This adds a new dimension to the boring five-in-a-row concept.

I just bought this game over the weekend and my family loves it! It is simple to learn, but there are many strategies involved. I recommend only using 4 squares if only 2 players are playing and 6 squares if 3 players are playing. This makes the game a little more challenging. My 15-year-old is becoming quite the expert!

OVERVIEW - I had been wanting a copy of Pentago for quite some time. Eventually, I discovered "Pentago Multi player" and immediately it shot to the top of my wish list. The game is deceptively simple, but has some deeper thinking beyond what is explained in the rules. A game of Pentago rarely lasts more than twenty minutes, and even if it does, that usually means there are some serious, game-deciding decisions going on (or someone who just can't make up their mind. The term "Analysis Paralysis" is thrown around meaning that you are unable to make a move because you are thinking much too hard about your current options and their impacts).

POSITIVES (Aspects of the game that I enjoyed either right away or overtime)
* Components: The double-sided player markers are wonderful. They feel well constructed, look beautiful and when seen by other people, the bright colors naturally draw them in and make them want to know what this game is. The markers come in their own drawstring bags, which is nice for getting them all out of the box at once without any unnecessary mess or noise. The board is light, but does not feel flimsy or easily damaged. The rule book comes with well illustrated strategies that can teach a novice to play well right away, but doesn't offer anything that breaks the fairness of the game between someone who has and has not read the rules.
* Game Play: Playing from two to four players is great, especially since you always have to think about what everyone else is planning. There's a slight Princess Bride-esque moment of "Well, I can't rotate it this way because you would do this, but I can't rotate it this way because they would do that...

We host a weekly games night, and have over 200 games on the shelf. When I review a game, I do have a pretty good basis for comparison.

Super Pentago is a great strategy game that teaches and plays quickly. The mechanics of play are simple, on your turn you place one of your tokens, and you twist one of the 9 sections of the board. First player to get 5 in a row wins. The tricky part is that twisting the board sections changes the relationship of the pieces. It is usually a surprise when someone twists and gets 5 in a row, because it can be so tricky to visualize all the possibilities. You can play a more obvious strategy, going for straight lines including the center spots on the twisty sections, which has the advantage of being easy to keep track of, but everyone can see what you are working towards. You can play a trickier strategy, going for diagonals and avoiding those center spots. Other players can twist to keep you away from your goal, but, they may not see your real intent, or you might adapt to their attempts to block you.

This game tends to reward the ability to plan ahead, and if you can't visualize a changing game board, you will be surprised often.

The whole point of this game is to get 5 of your pieces in a row first. The gimmick here is that the board has 9 sections, each of which is able to rotate 90 degrees allowing for players to place a piece and then twist the board to match with their other pieces. Not really the greatest game but, not bad either. Would probably play best with 2.

I got this game about half a year ago for my 5-year-old daughter. She loves it! We play a least 2 times a month. The only problem we have is teaching her to lose without throwing a tantrum.
