Product Description

Product Description

Each player is the only person to know which colour is their own and should try as discreetly as possible to ensure that this is the majority colour across the playing board. In turn,players place a pyramid. These form piles of which the colour is determined by the piece at the top of the pile. If a player places a piece on top of a pyramid of the same colour,both pyramids cancel each other out and are removed from the game: the pile then tales on the colour of the piece underneath. When all pieces have been played,the player whose colour holds the majority on the board wins the game. A game mixing bluff and strategy,Kabaleo promises some intense and unique experiences!

Box Contains

  • 66 x multicoloured pyramids
  • 1 x material bag
  • 1 x set of rules

    4.0 out of 5 stars Kabaleo - Guessing Games 29 Jan. 2014
    By Ed Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
    Gigamic games is pretty well known for its attractive strategy games and Kabaleo fits into both categories. My first reaction upon opening the game was similar to opening a Christmas present. The first glimpse you get doesn’t really give it away, but it looks shiny and new. The game is played as one to four players compete for stacks of little cones. A stack is claimed as yours when it is topped with your color (kept secret from everyone else in the game). Watch yourself though, it is just as easy for another player to remove your piece or top it with a different color altogether. The two possible moves are simple: place a piece atop a different color and leave it there, or place the same colored cone and remove both of them. You would be surprised at how fast the game goes and how hard it is to guess your opponent’s colors. Overall, Kabaleo is a great game to have around but I don’t know that I would go to any extreme lengths to acquire it.

    Cons

    1.) Last move Advantage – I haven’t proven it yet, but it seems as though the player who goes last has a huge advantage. Gameplay is more or less predictable as each player tries to keep all of the other colors in check. If one color gets too many it wont be long before someone knocks one out. Because of this, the game comes down to a pretty close call as all of the colors are kept more or less equal. This gives the last player a huge advantage as they can tip the scale for any color they choose.

    2.) Variety – regrettably the game doesn’t have a huge amount of variety. One game feels more or less like the others. The rules suggest two different styles of game play: dealing out random cones to everyone or dividing them up so that each player has the same number of each color. The random version fixes this a little, forcing you to rethink your strategy each time depending on the number of each color you have, but not enough to make each game a whole new adventure.

    Pros

    1.) Age Friendly - My nieces and nephews were having a blast playing with the pieces that we had already used.

    2.) Beats Chess – If you know me, I don’t have too many good things to say about chess, and I think Kabaleo just takes me further away from playing it. If it moves above chess in my rankings then it gets another dice in my book.

    3.) Aesthetics -The game is so much fun to look at. The pieces are durable and brightly colored. Some games just look like they are worthy of the price you paid. I promise you wont open this game and think that they cut corners in the production.

    4.) Strategy – Sometimes a good strategy game is just what you need to get your mind going, but too often, strategy games drag on forever and force players to think endlessly over each turn. I was surprised how difficult it is to guess the other player’s colors. I have successfully done it a handful of times. Kabaleo eliminates this as each game can take anywhere from 15 – 30 minutes. Simple and strategic fun.

    Although I don’t think it merits another dice, another pro for this game is that it takes little to no effort to explain to even your most amateur gamer. Overall, Kabaleo is a great game to have around. I would recommend it to almost anyone as a great filler game and an especially good one to have around as an introduction to strategy games for kids and adults alike. I ended up ditching the box and storing it in the little bag that came with it – another great feature of this game.

    This is a well crafted game, the actual game pieces are sturdy. The game itself is quite boring and not all that fun, especially for the price

    We had a lot of fun playing this game! Adults & children can play it. It can be played with strategy or luck... would be fun for a group of adults as well.
