How do you create a game that has sold over 4 million copies in 30 different countries. Easy, just make it a game that anyone can learn in one minute, but that may take a lifetime to master. Loosely based on sumo wrestling, the point of Abalone is to push just 6 of your opponents 14 marbles off of the playing surface, but there is a catch. It takes two marbles to move one, and three to move two. Simple. Yes. Simplistic. By no means! The six directions of movement allow for infinite strategies both offensively and defensively. For 2 players.
