  • Abalone is an all-time favorite two-player strategy game
  • The object is simple: push six of your opponent's marbles off the board before he or she does the same thing to you
  • The board is hexagonal, with divots in which the marbles rest, and a track around the edge to catch them as they are pushed off
  • Connecting the divots are shallow grooves; players push their marbles from divot to divot along these grooves
  • These marbles can be used to push your opponent's marbles as well, as long as you "outweigh" them in the direction you're moving. (i.e., three can push two, two can push one, or three can push one. Three can't push three, because you don't outnumber them.)

Product Description

From the Manufacturer

A travel version of the hot French import game. A sophisticated game of strategy, Abalone takes only a few minutes to learn but a lifetime to master. Reinforces math and reasoning skills.

Product Description

Take a little French fun with you wherever you go! The strategy game that has taken Europe by storm is conquering the USA, one vacation at a time. The concept is simple: all you need to do is knock six of your opponent's marbles off the game grid. But you can only move the other player's marbles if you have more than s/he does. And, because moves are diagonal, there are dozens of options for every turn. This travel version is lightweight and compact, plus it comes with a lid, in case you need to save your game for later. Find out why this game takes five minutes to learn and a lifetime to master!

Ok, Abalone is a great game, but I don't love the travel version. I mainly have three complaints. One, it's small. The marbles are so small that it's hard to play the game. Two, the marbles aren't uniform and don't roll and push like they should in the game (meaning you have to often move one marble at a time instead of push, which is sad because that's the fun of the game). Lastly, the cover (as other people have mentioned), isn't very tight. It doesn't really do much to save a game. I've come back and found the marbles have spilled out or shifted into different spots.

Ultimately, I think the game Abalone is a fun and strategic abstract game that is one of my favorites, but the travel version isn't as good as the full size version. Unless you absolutely need the small form factor, get the original. It's not a total loss though. I'll use this version when I go to board game clubs.

This is a great game. Makes you think. Container could have a more solid lid for transporting purposes - it's easy to lose those little marbles! Simple and fun!

You are much better off getting the full size set. The marbles are not evenly sized, and the board does not allow you to push them easily. You will find picking up marbles to do your moves are more common they it should be.
