Product Description

Legend says that Solitaire was invented to entertain Louis XIV, "The Sun King" who ruled from 1643 to 1715. A French engraving dating from 1697 shows Princess de Soubise playing the game of solitaire. This humble game of strategy has challenged and stumped mathematicians, royalty, and the run of the mill game-players for centuries. It's no wonder that Solitaire has captivated so many throughout the years. One could spend an entire morning, afternoon and evening trying to win at this game.

Wood Solitaire with Marbles

This is a very old and quite clever little game. There are no bright colors and whistles and bells - just a simple wooden board and 33 shiny pale blue marbles. The object of the game is to remove the marbles by jumping them with the final goal of leaving one marble in the center of the board. The placement of the final marble in the center of the board denotes a "perfect" game. Looks are deceiving - this is no child's game. I have played this puzzle about thirty times and have two perfect games to my credit. The interesting point is that I can't say with any certainty exactly how I arrived at my placement of a solitairy marble in the center of the board. Therein lies the hook of this game which I highly recommend.

This is the kind of game you would keep on your coffee table to intrigue guests, but I love it in the classroom! For early finishers, this is the perfect activity to be done alone. The player uses problem solving skills to "solve" this puzzle. My students are hooked! Many of my students in the past few years have been able to complete this game...I have not, but I keep trying!

This is a fun game that is challenging yet relaxing at the same time. The marbles that come with it are a very gorgeous light blue color.(Though I did buy some marbles separately for variety.)It's got a wooden board with a dip in the edge to hold the marbles you've played off. This game is very relaxing, it helps me plan and remember things while I'm playing. it's kinda meditative. Its very fun I recommend it!!!

I got this for my 9 year old daughter for Christmas, and it was an instant hit. Everyone in the family (from my 6 year old son to the grandparents) has tried it out many times over. The concept is simple enough for a small child, but the goal of eliminating as many marbles as possible is a real brain teaser even for puzzle-loving adults. Better still, it's attractive enough that it looks nice sitting out on the coffee table, so when guests come they also start toying around with it, trying to solve the puzzle. Definitely a worthy purchase!

My grandson gave me one of these that he got handmade in Bali. I bought this one for a friend who loves games. You will play this game over and over trying to get better. No matter how you play it has been impossible for me to get down to just one marble.
Kids also love this game.

I am still trying to get down to one marble! lol I love this simple and fun game. my family isnt much into games like i am so I have to get 'solitaire' type games and im sick of cards! so i wanted something new and im so happy i got this game. Hours of fun, nothing too exciting just simple fun for play by yourself. There are more expensive boards out there but this one was a great value for a good quality board. Marbles and board are sturdy and solid.
**the blue marbles are easy to see and such a nice shade**
im very happy with my purchase!

My dad had bought this game for us kids when we were in grade school, probably about 55 years ago. It was the same layout, but it was a white plastic background that fit into a box and there were red pegs that fit into tiny holes, but it was the same idea and layout, it was the same exact game. I thought of that game through the years and wondered why no one had made it anymore, and I figured it was because of all the electronic games the kids have nowadays. Then I finally saw it on Amazon! I ordered it right away. I was very pleased to see how nicely it had been upgraded to a beautifully finished wood base and gorgeous blue marbles. It came nicely and securely wrapped and the first thing I did was open it and begin to play the game. Of course, I didn't win it the first time. :)

My 10 year old grandson was very interested in it and curious to see if he could get the one marble left in the middle, which is the object of the game. It takes a lot of thought and planning, so I thought this would be a good game for him to learn to concentrate. I can imagine how accomplished he'll feel when he finally gets the one last marble left in the middle ! The game came in a timely fashion and I was very pleased that it also has a little bag for the marbles, so kids won't lose them, plus the beautifully finished smooth wood board has a ridge around it so you can put the marbles in it as you play the game so they won't roll all over the table. I think this was a great purchase, I'm very pleased and would recommend it to anyone, young and old. The 'thing' with the game is....that it looks so easy, but it's not and you get 'hooked' on trying it again and again to get the last marble left in the middle. Good amusement for the kids when there's nothing for them to do or if they are bored, makes them actually 'think'. Thank you so much to the game manufacturer for 're-creating' this old game, and to Amazon for their wonderful service to offer it. :) Another happy camper !!
