Product Description

Pente is like a sophisticated variation of tic-tac-toe. The object of Pente (which means "five" in Greek) is to line up five stones in a single row or capture five pairs of an opponent's stones.

Pente is one of only twenty games in the GAMES Magazine "Hall of Fame," a premier tier of classic products that includes Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble. This commemorative Twentieth Anniversary Edition features a deluxe playing surface and four sets of colorful glass stones. While the eye is enticed by Pente's vivid beauty, the mind is confronted with enough challenges to last a lifetime.

My latest gaming addition
November 28, 2001

I just started playing Pente about four days ago and I can't stop. My friend and I play it whenever we get the chance. It does truly have all of the things that make a true classic. My friend and I are fascinated by its complexity, yet the game still remains simple. As said before, it is easy to learn, yet almost impossible to master. There are so many outcomes, ways to win, and so forth. This is what makes Pente great. I'd recommend it to anyone. Sure, people don't play it anymore, but that's because they've never heard of it before (I don't know why). If they give it a try, I'm sure 9 times out of 10 they'll be hooked. Hey, you reading this, go buy a game of Pente.
