Product Description

Abalone takes only a few short minutes to learn--and it's never the same game twice. Just move your marbles toward your opponent, outnumber him, and force him off the board! Although Abalone can be learned easily by players of almost any age, advanced game players can enjoy the challenge of its strategies. And Abalone can be played anywhere--indoors or out. A great-playing strategy game like this comes along only once in a lifetime!

In Abalone, players play in turns, moving one, two, or three marbles at a time. Just push one marble into the other marbles in a row--and they all shift over into the next open space. Force your row into your opponent's. As long as your row outnumbers his--you can push his marbles off the board to score. Push off six and win!
