Product Description

Kuba is played on an attractive board, using 29 solid glass marbles. The first player to force seven of the neutral red marbles off the playing surface is the winner. How do you move the marbles? Instead of picking the marbles up to "jump," you move by pushing. Push one marble to move another or push one to move whole rows. Learn the rules in five minutes; play for a lifetime.

Best marble game ever made!
November 24, 2007

My teacher has this game and when we have no homework few of my friends and I play it. It's amazing, and very addictive. Sometimes the game gets very intense. I say the game doesn't last for 20 minutes, I say they last more as an hour if you're really thinking about it. This game is the best marble game ever invented, and if you want something that will make you think then this is game is for you! It's worth the money!

My teacher has Kuba in his class room, and a few kids come in early like 2 hours before school starts. So to keep us from getting bored we play Kuba. I'm in 5th grade and I love Kuba. It's exciting to play, but also to watch! I can't wait to own my game of Kuba! It's terrific!

I picked up Kuba in a game store in Chicago and we've all become addicted to it. Simple rules, but the play varies as we try different strategies on attack. Very satisfying to run your opponent's marbles into the gutter. Sometimes hard to rememeber that's not really the point to the game.

On a par with chess and go!

Kuba is a little gem. Few people would believe that a small backwater company like patch products could create a game that is on a par with chess and go but KUBA is such a game. It is elegant, both simple and complex at the same time, and filled with strategic depth, it is also a rival to the classic game of ABALONE.

Simple To Learn, and Highly Addictive
April 08, 2001

Although the first five moves are pretty important if you want a shot at winning this game, I find it a nice mind exercise. It is a highly addictive game. I had it out this weekend on the deck with some family members (who are not hardcore gamers). They loved it, and we played for WAY too long... 8^)

It is a very simple concept which has high replay value with equally matched players. It is also a relatively quick game. Our longest match was about 25 minutes, and some were over after 10 minutes.

There are demos of a computer version available on the web--play it before you buy it. You will want the real board game on your shelves, though. The bits are great--the large marbles and nicely textured plastic board are durable and attractive.

You won't be sorry if you are a fan of abstract strategy games.

(I hate to gush about a game, but it is a blast to play! 5 Stars!)

Very enjoyable!

I first got hooked on this game by playing the free computer demo. I was very pleased when I received it as a birthday gift.

If you like abstract games, you will surely rate this game higher. It's very good. I prefer a theme, so I gave it 3 stars, which (for me) is a pretty high rating for an abstract game.
