Material

1 small square playing board with holes
2 x 15 marbles in two different colours.


Description

The playing board has 25 small holes, 5 rows by 5 columns. The players 'push' a marble in a whole from the border of the board, thus moving other marbles forward; both the marbles of the player's own colour and the marbles of the other player. Hence, the pattern of the coloured marbles changes quickly, and is difficult to predict. The player who is best in thinking ahead has an advantage. The player who first succeeds in making a connection with his own marbles between the border from which he pushes his own marbles and the border at the other side, wins the game.
