This is one of my favorite board games at the moment... For the more serious gamers in my circle of friends, this game brings out strategy, tactics, and depth that is comparable to chess. Heck, some of my friends say that it's better than chess! And faster, too Anyway, the simple mechanics and variations of gameplay (we like to play Lions Only variant, where all pieces MUST start out on the track before moving into the arena) make for awesome replayability...

One of my favourite abstract strategy games. It has a certain charm (in the similar way to chess) Has a lot more to it than a simple 5 in a row game.

Not your typical 5-in-a-row game. There is an element of resource management in that you only have 12 pieces per side. Plus, the designer (whoever he is) managed to cleverly reduce the importance of the center by 1.) allowing a special, unlimited slide movement along the edge of the board, as well as 2.) introducing permanent diagonal movement for pieces that are brought in from the edges (which are otherwise only orthogonal). I really like it!

Much more fun then Pente. Get five in a row to win but the pieces can move.

Interesting 5-in-a-row game with more going on that one would expect due to the pieces being off-board, and due to the movement after placement, and the movement of the Lions.

This is not a bad game. It is a good 5-line variation with beautiful pieces and board.

Pente with attitude. The pieces actually move which allows for evolution in the game. The number of pieces are limited and the wise know how to play into a situation where you are the one holding the remaining pieces as they can be put anywhere on the board. Nice design and better than the more popular Pente.

After trying to sell or trade this unsuccessfully for four years, I finally played it and was pleasantly surprised. Very strategic and thought-provoking. It has been removed from my trade list.

I have only played once so far, but I was not really able to get my head around the tactics to play a good game. I need to play it more.

Quick game play. The kids enjoy it, though they have a hard time watching for all of their vulnerabilities (so they don't win much).

It's a bit like Pente, but with a bit more to it. Played this a few times in my teens.
