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.
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).
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 thought the rubber mat 'board' was a little heavier that it needed to be. It's pretty thick and you have to work a little to get it to lie flat.Published on October 13, 2013 by Homeschool mom

My girlfriend got my hooked on Pente, and we play a lot. This board is pretty good although whoever chose the color scheme was obviously color blind.Published on July 11, 2012 by B. Greenstone
