- 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.)

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.
The travel version is the size of other travel games and comes with a translucent cover. Unfortunately, there are two design flaws: 1)The cover isn't very secure. I keep the game in the box otherwise I would end up looking all over my bag for the marbles. 2)The cover doesn't secure to the bottom of the board.
Verdict: If you like games without complicated rules, this is one for you.
