Discover our new version with brand new graphics inspired by the latest edition of the famous strategy game. Abalone has been one of the best games around for nearly 30 years, known for its hexagonal board and black and white marbles. The goal of this abstract board game is simple: push your opponent’s marbles off the board! But beware, it’s not easy to master, so keep your wits about you and rise to the challenge!
HAVE A PLAN OF ATTACK...
Create a plan of attack to push your opponent’s marbles off the board. On every turn, you can move one space in any direction with 1, 2, or 3 lined-up marbles. When you’re in a Sumito position (that is, when your marbles both outnumber and are in contact with your opponent’s) you can push their marbles out! For example, you need three black marbles to push one or two white marbles. There’s no use in rushing; it’s better to take your time and think of every possibility since one hasty move can put you in a bad position and let victory slip through your fingers.
...AND HAVE A STRONG DEFENSE.
If you want to win, the key is not to attack, but rather to take specific positions with certain combinations of moves. Just like in chess and checkers, you can try to create traps by sacrificing marbles or strategic positions to block your opponent. The most dangerous contact points are at the edges of the board, where a bad move means losing a marble or the whole game! Sometimes, it’s better to be patient if you want to win!
DON’T CONFUSE FORESIGHT AND HASTE
The keys to victory are looking ahead and analyzing your opponent’s play. Although the game is easy to learn, it requires strategy and thought. To hone your strategic thinking, the game offers several modes that let you review your games play by play. For example, Challenge Mode helps you become a true Abalone master, one move at a time. The challenges get harder as you advance. For example, at first you must push out a single marble only to win a challenge, then two, and the master will get progressively tougher.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun but glitchy
Very annoying when you have to reinstall because of glitches.
Brilliantly realised adaptation of the game; feels like you're sitting at a table physically moving the spheres! The backgrounds and buttons on the menu and title screen could be modernised and sharpened up a bit, but the actually gaming is perfect. Just needs Game Centre sync between iOS devices and it's golden. Won't need to buy another abstract board game after this.
It doesn’t work properly. Simple as that.
I played a few online games last night and when moving two or three marbles inline, sometimes one of the marbles would merge into another and disappear.
It’s a pain because my rating goes down when I resign as a result of faulty software. And because I paid £2.99 for an app that looked like had great reviews.
Let’s see if the developer does anything about this...
