One of the most popular strategy games of all time! Simple, fast moving and fun game involving subtle and profound strategy.
You can push one, two or three marbles at a time. Your marbles can move
one space, in a straight line or laterally. Two marbles can push one and
three marbles can push one or two of your opponent's marbles. But three can't push three,
because you don't outnumber them. The first player who knock 6 of your opponent's marbles off
the game grid wins.
While the game seems simple, it's not simplistic. Abalone's six directions of movement require
players to stay focused as they balance both offensive and defensive strategy.
Let's find out why this game takes five minutes to learn and a lifetime to master!
