Product Description: Abalone (Rollone)
Age Level: 7 +
Number of Players: 2
Game Description: Abalone is played with fourteen spherical white and fourteen black stones on a surface consisting of six corners and sixty-one holes. The aim of the game, which can be summarized as sumo wrestling with marble stones, is to throw six of the opponent’s stones out of the playing field. Besides being a mind game with unlimited combinations, it is also very easy to learn. In addition, marble stones also physically relax the players. There are even those who find the click-click-click sound musical while pushing the opponent’s pieces. Black always starts the game. The pieces in the game can be moved in three ways. When moving one piece into the nearest hole, two or three pieces in a linear direction, two or three pieces to their sides (the pieces must be moved in the same direction), the pieces cannot be moved more than one hole. During the move, each player has only one right to move (even if the opponent pushes the player’s piece out of the playing field). The first to throw 6 pieces out of the game wins.
