This game is so simple and at the same time fascinating. Like all good games that last it has few rules, few components, but limitless possibilities. I have played it with both adults and children (eight years old) and it was difficult both times. A game that will stay in your collection alongside the scrabble, dominoes, chess or pack of cards.

Very highly recommended. This is an uncomplicated game which only takes a few minutes and has a pleasing tactile sense from handling the glass beads. It's a bit addictive, especially if you're both at a similar skill level since you'll go through the 'best of 3', 'all right then, best of 5' etc, etc...

I bought this as a present for my Mum and we all loved it so much that I bought another for us - great for all our children aged 4, 6 and 7 and keeps them and us quiet for ages. I am now buying another as a gift for a friend - buy it, you wont regret it I'm sure!

Bought it on 12 December 2012 and now it definitely DOES have 4 pieces per hole i.e. 48 pieces (this is essential really, as with three and five piece games the is a strategy for the first person to always win).

I couldn't be more pleased. Prompt delivery, excellent quality wood and carving. Durable, and beautiful marbles/pieces. (semi-transparent, a bit like disk shaped marbles). It looks much better in real life than it does in the photo. I deliberated for a long time over which to buy, and I'm so pleased with my choice.

I have a five year old daughter who I want to get interested in maths (I'm a maths teacher) and this is ideal, as the rules are simple, and whilst adults can play against kids, the strategies can become very complex (indeed you can actually play with different rules as well), making it the perfect game for a quiet evening with a friend and a few beers/wine.

A deceptively simple but fun game that can be played by all. You will probably want to find a bag to keep the coloured glass stones in as once loose in the box they are likely to go missing.

Very nicely packaged and finished. The only reservation I have is that it would have been nice to have sufficient counters to play a five stone game rather than the three provided.

Brilliant Game! Very simple but can provide entertainment for hours on end. Even younger ones can play - looks nice on display as well.
