From the land of Sweden, known for simplicity of design, comes Pentago, a strategy game with just two play steps. First, you place a marble. Second, turn one of the game's four blocks. Get five marbles in a row and you win. But no Mensa Select winner plays without some serious mental calisthenics and Pentago is no exception, for just when you think you have your moves thought through, your opponent rotates a quadrant and suddenly the whole board is different. With each turn of the blocks the game board changes and so must your tactics. Being able to visualize how the board will look when any piece is rotated is an essential skill in this game.
Pentago's initial charm is its simplicity in learning and playing, making it suitable for even busy people. But, as with chess, where you have to think ahead several moves, spatial orientation techniques and strategies get perplexingly complex and deep logic and skill are required. Pentago has won numerous awards, including Game of the Year in Sweden, France, and Finland, as well as the much-coveted Mensa Select Winner award.
We are selling the "Cruise" edition of Pentago with its nifty snap-on plastic lid that keeps the marbles in place and four clever mechanical "easy-turn" squares that are locked into the base. Instructions are included.
Pentago is a fast and fun strategy game that is both simple and sophisticated. The object of the game is to create a row of five marbles anywhere on the board. The mind twisting part is that you'll twist one of the four game blocks as part of your move. This causes the game to dynamically change, making for a fun and challenging game experience for beginners and masters alike.
