Product Description

The triangular board is first balanced carefully on the small ball in the center of the outer frame, and each player takes all the pieces of one color. These pieces are in five different sizes, and differ accordingly in weight. The players take turns placing pieces onto the teetering board, being careful not to upset the balance of the board to the point that it strikes the frame. With each successful placement of a piece, the player not only blocks his opponents from occupying that space in the future, but also scores a number of points equal to the size of the piece successfully placed times the number of pips on the space. Those spaces nearer the edge of the board -- and the pieces with greater weight -- are worth more points, but are more likely to upset the delicate balance of the board. Once the board is full, players total their points and the player with the greatest sum wins.
