I cannot believe that Parker Brothers would just stop making such a fantastic game! I have an original glass board that my brother gave me in 1983! On New Year's a friend of my husband mentioned that he use to play years ago, but had lost his board. I traced a copy of mine on a piece of paper for him and we had a blast playing when we visited again! I would love to find out how I could make registered trademark official games for people. I know that once someone tries it, they too will become addicted like my husband and I are!
Some friends and I based in England have had no end of trouble trying to locate Pente in the UK with no sucess. After playing only a few games over 7 years ago we became dedicated advocates. However, the owner of the Pente set vanished and we were left without this wonderous game of skill in our lives. Gradually we became degenerate members of society and blended in with other members of the rat race. But now, on this fine sunny day in Bournemouth, I am about to order Pente from an outlet in the USA. Finally, my friends and I can lift ourselves from our mundane existences and relish the thought of once again playing Pente. If playing Pente can inspire a Worldwide search by three individuals longing to improve their lives then it deserves its' 5 stars, oh yes.
This game has been in my family since I was a child. I remember playing with aunts and uncles when I was under ten.
It was much loved, and I have memories of games that lasted up to an hour. I started playing at about age 6, which indicates how easy it is to learn--but I still find it a challenge with the right opponent.
A definite classic and I hope to get it again.
