Abalone is a two-player strategy game. Each player starts with fourteen black or white marbles on a hexagonal board and they must attempt to push six of their opponents marbles off the board and out of play. Players can move up to three marbles at any one time--horizontally, vertically, diagonally, forwards or backwards across the board. The attacking player can only push an opponents marble when he/she has a greater number of marbles in a row than that of his/her opponent. Therefore, three marbles can push two, three can push one, or two can push one but not vice versa! Hours of challenging gameplay are guaranteed!
