it becomes hard to pick up a marble without disturbing other marbles around it. I also gave a peg type board
for a present to some kids and that may be the answer to my problem. I went with the marbles because it is
what I had as a child and I am too traditional to break away from tradition!
The game board is darker and more reddish than shown here, like a deep, dark red mahogany. The lacquer is very thick and bubbly in places. I would have preferred the marbles to be solid colors since if several people are playing it is a bit of work to find your marbles since they are all clear with a colored strip inside. They are also not as vibrant as shown on Amazon.
I've played several games with my daughter and did not find the game board to be too small and had no trouble moving my marbles around without upsetting the nearby marbles.
For such a low priced game I'm happy overall.
The wooden game board is varnished and looks quite durable. The only slightly negative thing is that the holes are quite close together so some of the marbles are easily knocked over when you're picking up a marble to move.
It also might be a good idea to place a rubber band around the box when you close it, because the lid of the box just pops off the top and the marbles can easily fall out.
It doesn't have a nice box to store it in so it'd have to stay in the open, as-is, or in the box. One reviewer said theirs looked nice, but mine's of a deep cherry wood red looking color - can't really see the grain of the wood well, and therefore also loses appeal to me - which I personally always avoid because it's one of the few things in life that I look at and it'll make me feel kind of nauseated. But that was a reason I bought it, to have it out on display, if you will.
Anyway... I'll try to remember to update this review after I tear off the plastic and play it with a co-worker.

First of all games are not cheap. If you go into any store you will pay anywhere between 15-50.00 for any game. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Charley
Good size, Real Marbles and Wood. The deep storage channels for the marbles are great! The marbles did have an oily residue and had to be washed, but no big deal (I hope). Read morePublished 8 months ago by Mary
This is a very nice set. My only issue is that there is no box (other than the packaging) to hold all the game pieces securely.Published 9 months ago by vera s.
Very nice looking for my coffee table. Sturdy and well made. This couldn't be used to take someone elses house, not build for portability. Arrived within just a few days. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Marilyn Moffett
