Designer was interesting to interview
August 14, 2004

I had the chance to interview Gary Gabrel in my job as a disc jockey in 1983. I was given a copy of the game in the red tube. I recently dug it out for some teenagers to play and they are hooked. (What stands out most about my interview was Gabrel came in the studio smelling like he'd been smoking something other than tobacco.)

The game is great. I had no trouble teaching the basics to these kids. Then it was fun to watch them as they learned the fine points and developed their own strategies. Oh, and I found Gabrel's business card in the tube along with the green and yellow runes and the directions.

Classic Abstract Game
April 16, 2004

I have played this game since the 1980's. It has traded hands since its original rolled vinyl in a tube days, but it is still a quick, fun, abstact game that is colorful and well presented. While experts have analyzed the fun out of the original version, several variations have expanded its depth.

My only negative remark is the genre. Abstract games which rely on skill tend to reward the veteran and scare away the beginner. There are methods of handicapping, but I don't think they help.

Still it is a must for every gamer's library.

 
 
 
 
 
How do I get to start making Pente boards for people?
January 31, 2004

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!
