A strategy board game which can be played by two, three, four, or six people, playing individually or with partners. The game is a modern and simplified variation of the game Halma.( invented in Germany in 1892) The rules are simple, so even young children can play
First trademarked in 1974 but forms of the game have existed for much longer than that.
The Last Ball
Another 3d re-imagining of a classic game. Try to be the last player to have balls remaining.
Main Board with 16 holes
30 wooden balls: 15 dark balls and 15 light balls
Aim of the game:
To be the player to place the last ball on top of the pyramid.
Start of the game:
Each player alternately, puts a ball from his hand onto the board.
When a player makes a square of 4 of their own color they may take one or two of their balls from the board back to their hand.
At the beginning of a players turn instead of bringing a new ball from their hand they may move a ball of theirs on the board up to a square of four balls(of any color) higher on the board instead of playing a new ball from their hand.
Balls can only be moved or removed if they have no balls on top of them.
END OF THE GAME: The winner is the one who places his last ball at the top of the pyramid
Strategic game with a surprising end.
Originally played by the royalty of Madagascar, Fanorona was a pass time for the wealthy. It still holds up today as an extremely strategic game for two players.
22 white balls & 22 black balls set on the board as in the picture.
For each turn, a player moves one of their balls to an unoccupied space. When a ball runs into or moves away from a line of the opponent's balls they are removed from play. The player who has the last remaining balls on the board is the winner.
You will have to find a tactical way to capture the last balls on the board.
