On top of that, the pieces all look angry, like they're going to war. They have death-stares, flaring nostrils, and bulging neck muscles - even the rabbits
The board's dimensions are less than a normal chess board, but I personally see this as a positive because it can fit on smaller or cluttered surfaces.
I play arimaa online, and I can say the rules booklet that came with the set is accurate and clear. To get used to the rules, try playing with only 4 rabbits, 1 cat, and 1 dog for each player.
Overall, 5 stars. Even at the full price!
The real pleasure is in playing the game though.
I was a tournament chess player in my youth and wasn't sure if Arimaa could give the same challenge and sense of satisfaction as the old game. After I received the board and starting playing I found that my concerns were unfounded. This is a great strategy game and gives a whole new life to the 64-square board game genre. If you are burned out on chess and think Checkers is boring, this just might be the game for you.
My 9-year-old daughter picked up the rules easily and we have a great time playing in the evenings. I highly recommend the product and the game.
Arimaa is the biggest secret of modern board games of the last ten years. If you're a parent, teach your children this game as opposed to chess. Arimaa will help develop your child's intellectual and analytical skills, cognitive and spatial skills, your child's concentration, imagination, and creativity. All the benefits of chess only using simple intuitive rules! This means teaching this game to a four or five year old is a breeze. Though with a four year old, I'd probably just start with half of the pieces, say Elephant, Camel, two Horses, and four Rabbits, until they're used to the game play. Of course, this is a testament to the game's flexibility and versatility. Try playing an interesting game of chess without the knights and bishops!
Of course, don't think I'm implying this game is for kids. I'm in my 40's and I haven't played chess regularly in years. I just picked up this game last week and it has reinvigorated a long lost love of board games. Not only is it nice to grease the gears of my own analytical skills, it's also nice to sit back and play a game that I won't have to spend years studying to become competent (only to get my butt kicked by a computer program the rest of my life!). A nice resource I found at Arimaa.com in the Gameroom are numerous "bots". These are programs created by a healthy group of computer programmers trying to come up with one that can play nearly as well as a human. Though they have some that are pretty good (and some beginner bots that I was able to beat on my first game), none of them are even close to beating a "solid" human player.Read more ›

If you like chess, give it a shot. It's a fun alternative that has a tendancy to end very quickly. The pieces are actually pretty nice looking for molded plastic. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Kevin Cruz
