This is the game (I won't say toy) for people of all ages who want to have some mental fun and keep their brains active. I taught my son when he was a young boy as well as my 7-year-old nephew years later. Once you learn the simple rules, it's yours forever. It's a flexible (and portable) board with shiny "stones" used as game pieces, and your mission is to either capture five pairs of your opponents' pieces or get five of your own in a row along the grid. Sounds simple? Yes, like most good games, but it is stimulating as well. When my nephew turned 8, I purchased this game and he was thrilled; we'll keep the paper board he made with the crayon-marked grid at my house. Why not use my own game? My grown son claimed it years ago. It's hard to give up!

This game is great for all ages. We play it with our 6 year old grandson as well as with each other. It is simple to learn and can be played at any level of sophistication.

This is a very fun game that I enjoyed from the 70's. It is the perfect game, simple rules, great learning curve, however the more you play the more intense the game becomes. It's kind of addicting. The product I received is very nice with just 3 minor complaints. Since I have played a lot, my games tend to get a little longer and we begin to run out of stones (playing pieces), the second item (kinda petty) is that the original game came in a hard cardboard tube, perfect for travel. This one is a flimsy box. Third is that the original stones had those cloth bags for the stones. This one has those little plastic zip-lock ones, which are good for a while but begin to tear. Overall I am very satisfied with the product.

Let me first say that I have ordered many things from Amazon..barely a week goes by where I haven't ordered something. This is the first time I have felt the need to write a review. That said.....this product came with wooden pieces...not stones as claimed....exceptionally annoying. Not worth the money.

I enjoy playing Pente on this mat, but it's got some room for improvement. The mat itself is of good quality and can't be faulted. The glass stones aren't as great -- two of the colors, black and amber, are so similar that we can't use them at the same time. Blue and green are fine. The packaging is less than ideal: the stones came in bags that were essentially disposable that we had to replace with Ziploc bags. In my opinion a game should come with a decent way (like a cloth bag) to put away the pieces. Maybe I'm expecting too much. Also, I have seen Pente sets that come in a heavy duty cardboard tube, so you won't have to worry about the packaging falling apart over time. Not this set -- it comes in a standard cardboard box that we have to treat with care so we don't mess it up. I suppose most board games are like that, but I had higher expectations. Again, I like the mat, which makes it enjoyable to play, but I would probably shop for a more expensive set next time and be willing to pay for those little details that are missing from this set.

So disappointed! This is one of our family's favorite traditional games, and I had ordered this for a Christmas present for our grandchildren. Imagine my dismay when I opened it to find yet another Made In China piece of junk instead of the high quality game of Pente. There were not glass stones as has been traditional and as described in the seller's product description. I could overlook that it no longer comes in the cardboard tube, but I could not overlook the outgassing odor of cheap materials, and the cheap, painted small wooden discs stuffed into ziploc baggies.

Sending it back and will buy elsewhere.

East to learn, a lifetime to master. This is a really wonderful game for 2, 3 or 4 players, challenging and brain stimulating even with no blinking lights or sounds. Amazing!
