By Jonathan B. Skaines on November 16, 2006
I ordered this item excited to relive some childhood memories of the game and was very disappointed.

What I was hoping would be a reproduction of the original was instead an ugly, overpriced mousepad! The print quality on the board is a joke. Very blurry and an ugly blue instead of the nice cream color of the original.. And instead of a thin piece of leather-like material like the original, the board is the same thickness of a mousepad with the thick rubber backing and everything. Ok, No big deal, right? Wrong!

Imagine how disappointed I was when I rolled up the board to discover the board and the stones do not fit into the tube! No wonder they ship it outside the tube in the box! The glass stones are much like the original, but very light in color -- this was about the only good thing going for the set so for that I'll give it 1 star.

I sent this item back immediately upon receipt and would encourage anyone else interested in PENTE to find an original set and not buy this joke of a reproduction.

First of all, the stones DO fit into the tube without a problem - you have only to roll the sacks up with the board instead of trying to fit them all on top afterward. I can't compare the board to the 'classic' version, but I find this one durable and convenient.

Pente has become an instant favorite, and as a game designer myself, I greatly respect its elegance. If you've never played this game, TRY IT! The rules are incredibly simple yet the game-play is surprisingly rich and deep (much more than checkers but less than chess).

I am one of the ones who bought and loved this game in the 70's. Somewhere along the way my children lost the original mat to my set and we have been using our go mat instead (also a 19 x1 19 grid). Having a nostalgia for the original mat, and wanting to put my go mat back with those stones, I ordered this set. I was some disappointed that this Pente set came with only 4 sets of stones instead of my original 6 sets, but it's been a while since I've played with 6 people... The real problem to this set is that the round storage tube is not wide enough to actually hold the rolled-up mat, and the 4 sacks of playing pieces. It's a problem fixable by buying a larger mailing tube at Staples, but it seems a stupid problem to have to fix for a new game. The game itself is great. I still play it, my children play it, and sometimes we introduce new friends to the game too. The instructions with this set are an improvement over what came with my 1970's set.

This is a great game for all ages. I have always been a big fan of Pente; it all started when my big brother pulled out his Pente tube (curiosity), removed and unrolled the board (interest), and then dumped out all those pretty stones which glittered all over the floor (awe!).

This version of Pente from Winning Moves isn't any different from the old version, except that you get two new bags of stones, each bag of stones are still as pretty as before. The stone colors are Black, Blue, Gold, and Green. My only complaint is the quality. The tube, the board, and the bags aren't tough enough to handle the ferocity or frequency I generally inflict apon them. However, the quality isn't too bad. After a few months of much use, the tube has had the bottom end come off, and the board has had the corners start to de-lam.

Quality issues asside, I would say this is the best version of Pente I've seen in a long time. It has completely paid for it self already in the few months I have owned it, in the time I have spent joyously crushing others in compentitions! ;)

I love this game. The board is high quality and soft, thicker than I expected. The glass beads are plentiful, and most are good. A few were doubled or chipped. My college roommate had an older version of this game, which was better. This game board is a little too thick (or the cylinder too thin), making it impossible to put the bead bags back into the cylinder once the board is in. The only way to put the game away is to tightly wrap the game board around the 4 bead bags first, then you can slip the whole thing into the cylinder. Its a only minor issue, but I would prefer a wider cyclinder with some wiggle room. Other than that, the game is great.

This is a great game. you learn strategy and must pay attention to play. This roll up game board is easy to travel with. Very durable. great family game. probably more for older children and adults.

I love the "board," I love the stones and their little bags. I'm wondering though why I bought the four-person version because I can't see playing it with more than one person.

I bought this as a gift for my husband. He loved it, and he and his family (avid pente-players) really liked the look of the board. It is a really nice set, easy to put away as well.
