Tomoko ... a convoluted ball-rolling game for 2-4 sophisticated tacticians - that includes: 1 game board, 30 wooden balls, 36 pattern cards, 1 cotton bag, large print instructions.
Each player receives two pattern cards - both of which show a pattern of 9 balls.
Players try to achieve their patterns by pushing balls onto the board.
The card is laid on the table, by the player, each time a pattern is completed.
3 x 3 balls forms an ideal combination.
Thinking ahead before moving, to see the right pattern forming, will win the game - which ends when one player has collected 10 (5 or 3) pattern cards.
